International students have to go through the same application process as domestic students. Every year PósARQ publishes an “Edital de Seleção” (the rules established by PósARQ’s board to guide the selection of new students) describing every step of the application process, the necessary documents and the evaluation criteria. Application demands, among other requirements, a research project detailing the work intended to be carried out in the Master’s ou Doctor’s degree.
Each year, the Edital includes a list of supervisors and how many new students they are willing to accept. For the Master’s degree, there is no need to have a previous acceptance of a supervisor, but it is necessary to have a research project aligned with at least one of the research interests listed in the Edital. For the Doctor’s degree, the Program demands a letter of acceptance of a supervisor, although this does not mean that final acceptance is guaranteed.
The “Edital de Seleção” is published every year in December and deadlines for applications are usually in late February / early March (please refer to the Edital for specific dates). School year begins in June.
