Application Process for the Graduate Program in Neuroscience and Cognition

The application process will occur in three phases: i) evaluation of curriculum vitae (CV), ii) interview and iii) general test and English proficiency. You do not need prior acceptance of a supervisor or to present a research project. However, we suggest that applicants come into contact with potential mentors to check on the availability of research projects in the intended areas.

•   1st stage:The assessment consists of evaluation of academic titles, academic performance, production, work experience and (optional) letters of recommendation.

•   2nd stage:Candidates approved in the first stage will be invited to an interview by permanent members of the program. The interview can be done in person or by teleconference, according to the choice of the candidate.

•   3rd stage: Candidates approved to the third stage will be invited to attend a written general exam and an English proficiency exam, both in person, at the the UFABC facilities. The general and English proficiency exams can be substituted, respectively, by the General GRE exam and the TOEFL, IELTS or equivalent. The substitution will take place only when requested by the applicant in the application form and is subject to the analysis of the application committee.
