We've tried to provide all the information you will need if you are thinking about coming to study at Plymouth from Brazil. 

If you need to know anything else, you can contact our team using the details below. 


We require applicants to have completed the Certificado de Conclusão de Segundo Grau as well as year 1 from a University in Brazil with good overall grades to be considered for year 1 of a Bachelor's degree.

If you've not yet studied at a Brazilian University, you'll need to complete an International Foundation Year before applying to study at Plymouth. 

Our partner college on campus, University of Plymouth International College (UPIC), offers a wide variety of foundation courses.


We require applicants to have completed a Titulo de Bacharel or Licenciado/Licenciatura when awarded after a minimum of four years of study.
