Welcome Project


We’re very happy to see you here interested about living in Brazil and studying with us. First of all, let’s make it clear that you’ll need to communicate in Portuguese here, but because we’re still getting to know each other we’ll give you a break for the sake of this relationship and let you have some information in English for now. 

UNIPE is located in João Pessoa, capital of the state of Paraíba in Brazil. It was founded in 1585 and it is also known in the country as the city where the sun rises first, because it’s the easternmost city in the Americas at 34° 47′ 38″ W, 7° 9′ 28″ S.

In our institution you can find 40 different courses, but all of them are taught in Brazilian Portuguese. Our academic year is divided into two terms. If you wish to come in the first term (February-July) you may submit your documents until November 15th (of the year before), if you intend to apply for the second term (August-December) the application deadline is May 15th.
