Federal University of Mato Grosso (UFMT) — public non-profit university. It is located in Cuiaba, Brazil. The higher education institution is considered one of the youngest in the country, as it was founded in 1970. UFMT is working closely with Conselho de Reitores das Universidades Brasileiras (CRUB), Rede Nacional de Extensão (RENEX), Grupo Coimbra das Universidades Brasileiras (GCUB), Associação das Universidades de Língua Portuguesa (AULP), Fórum de Assessoria das Universidades Brasileiras para Assuntos Internacionais (FAUBAI), Grupo Tordesilhas (GT), Associação das Universidades da Amazônia (UNAMAZ), PEC-G, Alfa III.
UFMT does research in different fields of study. You can find them on the official site.
As in many other universities in the country, the academic calendar at UFMT is divided into two semesters. But for convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Tuition fees at UFMT are different for locals and foreigners. Brazil citizens pay 198 USD per year, while international students pay a minimum of 1,000 USD. The university has several financial aid programs that help students cover part of the cost of education. Check the university website for up-to-date information on tuition fees and available scholarships.
Also, be prepared for additional expenses: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
Bachelor degree at UFMT
Students are accepted to bachelor's programs at UFMT based on the results of entrance exams.
The campus of UFMT is located in Cuiaba. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. Foreigners who come to UFMT through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
