Student Mobility
Useful information

Before leaving: for a good time at UNIFIPA, it is essential to have a good planning of the study period.

Visa: check if your locality is in the list of countries that need a Visa to enter Brazil to arrange documentation in advance.

Catanduva is an interesting city, pleasantly small and distant from São Paulo. Therefore, it is more comfortable and convenient that you have a Brazilian bank account.

To open your bank account, you need the RNE (National Registry of Foreigners), which also provides a CPF (Individual Registry).
If you do not already have RNE, you can apply at the consulate before coming to Brazil.

Travel Insurance: be with yours in order to count on the benefits during your studies.

Checklist (mobility): you need to be aware of everything that needs to be provided and the information you need before traveling.

Arriving in Brazil: for arrival at UNIFIPA, students will have flights departing from the main airports from São Paulo to São José do Rio Preto, as well as modern highways, such as Bandeirantes, Anhanguera and Washington Luiz.

Scholarships and funding: UNIFIPA offer options for foreign students to learn and exchange experiences in our courses.

Learn Portuguese: Portuguese is one of the most charming languages in the world and is very popular with foreigners coming to Brazil. UNIFIPA offers classes for its foreign students to learn the language.

Help and support: no matter the country of origin, who comes to study in Brazil is very well received and has all the help and support for any need.
