Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL) is the largest higher education and research institution in Alagoas, Brazil. Internationalization is one of our top priorities. UFAL has over 50 international agreements with institutions all over the world. Here, students and faculty members also enjoy a multicultural environment and mingle in a melting pot.

The International Office works to provide mobility for Academia and the administrative staff by increasing cooperation and helping with logistics. Our team operates networks, international agreements, partnerships and consortiums, such as Erasmus MundusRede GalileuScience without Borders and others.

It also funds international cooperation and provides assistance for international students and advises our faculties and president on matters related to international education, exchange programs, scholarships and partnerships.

We work to provide the best service and support for our current international students (the ones who aim at a degree, visiting or engaging exchange programs), researchers and staff.

In addition, we seek to improve the cooperation between UFAL and foreign institutions in order to avail not only the university itself of benefits, but also the state of Alagoas.
