Students who obtained their degrees abroad may be admitted upon recognition of the degree by the PPG-AQI Council. The degrees must be presented with the Brazilian consular seal, except in cases covered by specific diplomatic agreements.

For admission to the Master’s or Doctoral Degree Program the student must have been selected by the Program or have obtained transfer from another accredited Graduate Program (stricto sensu). The admission by transfer can only be effected upon approval of the PPG-AQI Council, provided that it complies with the requirements defined in a specific regulation.
