• student visa (temporary visa IV);
• proof of original medical insurance;
• two 3mm x 4mm photos with white background.

Once registered, students must go to the Federal Police to apply for an international identity card within thirty days after arrival in Brazil. Those students who have been selected for campus housing are to apply for an individual taxpayer identification number (CPF), issued by the Internal Revenue Service (Receita Federal).

Enrolment in the chosen courses is to be done in collaboration with the course coordinator according to the calendar of the Advisory Committee for International Affairs. Once enrolled, students should observe the academic calendar and attend classes regularly. At UnB, grading is proportional to a scale from 0 to 10. To be approved in a course, students must have a minimum grade of MM (average), which is between 5.0 and 6.9. At the end of the exchange period, the student will present a report using the model available on the Advisory Committee for International Affairs homepage.
