2 - International students who need to obtain a residence visa for study purposes must carefully check the deadlines of each application phase (namely: posting of the results, enrolment and beginning of the academic year) and make sure that they have enough time to ensure all the necessary procedures. This is particularly relevant in the 2nd and 3rd phases for application.
3 - For the Doctoral Program in Refining, Petrochemical and Chemical Engineering (PDERPQ), the dates for application and the start and end dates of the quarters are available at Informações para candidatura - PDERPQ 2024/2025.

Ranking Criteria

Ranking criteria are defined by study cycle (see information for each cycle of studies).
In some study cycles or application phases there may be minimum requirements for the admission of applicants, for example, to have a grade equal or higher than a certain value in a numerical scale 0-200.

Ranking grade: result obtained by applying the calculation formula established in the ranking criteria.

Notes:

1 - In the 1st phase only the applicants that present official documentation proving that they have the necessary qualifications for the purposes of the competition will be admitted.
2 - In the 2nd and 3rd phases, applicants who have completed or will complete the study cycle by the end of the application deadline will be accepted for ranking (except for study cycles that have other admission requirements). If they do not have the certificate of degree completion yet, a declaration of honour that they have completed the necessary qualifications for the purposes of the competition will be accepted; however, it is mandatory to present the official certificate of course units completed. The enrolment shall be conditional upon presentation of the official documents proving the conclusion.
3 - In the study cycles that foresee an interview as a ranking criterion, the call for interview will be made by e-mail to the e-mail address stated in the application.
