Common questions

1) I am interested in the Masters in Informatics, I just haven’t graduated yet and as enrollments go until the last day of enrollment and I would like to know if you accept to enter in a statement that I am finishing the course.

Yes, we accept that statement in this situation.

2) I would like to know if the Master’s Degree requires full-time students and exclusive dedication to the activities of the Course.

The Master’s degree requires exclusive dedication from students who have a scholarship from the program. However, for students who work it is important to inform that the workload in the master’s degree is high and classes are given in the morning and evening shifts. Thus, PPGI will always give preference to students with Exclusive Dedication.

3) I am wondering when and how to apply for a vacancy for “special students in master’s courses”.

The application process takes place within the registration period defined in the PPgI-UFPB calendar. The student will not be able to make this request alone, he will have to look for a Program Professor who wants to be his “tutor”. In general, students who went through the selection process and were unable, for some reason, to enter as regulars, request to be accepted as special.
