PHD COURSE (for candidates already owning a Master’s degree)
 

***Registration period: any time of the year***


Requirements

Complete undergraduate and stricto sensu Master’s course.

Required documents

- Registration form;
- Copy of Identification Document;
- Updated curriculum Lattes (CV Lattes);
- Academic transcript, record or equivalent document, including if applicable: failed subjects and withdrawals, issued by the university’s student administration, registrar or corresponding office;
- Certificate of completion of stricto sensu Master’s course. If the degree was obtained abroad, the candidate must provide a document proving degree equivalency (in the framework of the University of São Paulo) or Master’s Degree national recognition.
- Recommendation letters from 3 of the candidate’s former professors, following the requested standard format;
- 3 copies of a detailed research project, with literature review, methodology and timeframe of activities.


1 - The research project and documents submitted will be analyzed by a committee composed of the intended supervisor and two other members. Additionally, the candidate should make a brief presentation about the project to clarify eventual doubts and queries.

2 – The Program Coordinating Commission (CCP – Comissão Coordenadora de Programa) will evaluate the result of the analysis and forward the acceptance or refusal of admittance to the Graduate Studies Committee (CPG – Comissão de Pós-Graduação).

Please notice that the project presentation may occur through video-conference – by Skype, for example – at the place defined by the examination committee.
