Bachelor Degree In Brazil

Find the right Bachelor Degree in Brazil with our comprehensive guide.

There are three different types of undergraduate degree in Brazil.

bacharelado – trains students for professional careers, and takes 3 – 6 years to complete
licenciatura – a teaching degree in a specific subject, which takes 3 – 4 years to complete
tecnologia – highly specialised courses, which take 2 – 3 years to complete

Often the decision of whether to take a bacharelado or a licenciatura degree can be taken during the course; you don’t need to make a decision on which to pursue before you apply.

You must be able to speak and write Portuguese to academic standard – this is a requirement in Brazil and is assessed by a language exam.

It is likely that you will have to take this exam alongside any interviews you have to take in order to be admitted to the university.

All students, whether home or international, will have to pass an entrance exam known as the vestibular. These normally take place in December or January.
