Universidade do Extremo Sul Catarinense (Unesc) — private non-profit university. It is located in Criciuma, Brazil. The higher education institution is among the youngest in the country. Unesc is an active member of Conselho de Reitores das Universidades Brasileiras (CRUB), Associação Brasileira dos Reitores das Universidades Estaduais e Municipais (ABRUEM).
Unesc works in several scientific areas and is waiting for new students.
At Unesc, the academic calendar is divided into two semesters. However, tuition fees are calculated per year. Tuition fees here are different for locals and foreigners. For locals, it starts from 203 USD, and for foreigners — a minimum of 1,000 USD. The exact cost of programs and information on the availability of scholarships can be found on the website of the university.
Also, be prepared for additional expenses: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
The campus of Unesc is located in Criciuma. 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. The school has a library where students can do their homework or just relax. Foreigners who come to Unesc through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
There are many options to stay in the country after completing your studies at the university. One of them is to get an offer from an employer and apply for a work visa. Detailed information can be found on the embassy website. We talk about other options for immigration in our article.
