Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a regular student and a special student?
The regular student is the student actually enrolled, with rights and duties regarding the program. It has a mandatory workload, completion of credits and presentation and approval of a dissertation. At the end of the course, you will be titled Master in Communication and Territorialities. The special student can study a single subject during one academic semester. If you pass the course taken and participate in the selection process as a regular student, obtaining approval, the course can be taken according to the rules established in the internal regulations.

What is the selection frequency?
The selection of regular students takes place annually. The notice is commonly published in the second semester of each year, opening vacancies for the next year's class. The selection of special students is carried out every six months, and places are offered according to the program's internal demand in the respective academic semester.

What types of Post-graduate courses are offered?
Post-graduate studies in Brazil are divided into two levels: lato sensu (encompassing specialization and improvement courses) and stricto sensu (encompassing Master's and Doctorate courses). PósCom currently only offers the Academic Master's Degree stricto sensu, but the project for the Doctorate is already underway.

Are postgraduate courses paid or free?
Specialization courses can be paid or free. The Master's and Doctorate courses at Ufes are free as they are financed directly by the Federal Government.

Do Master's and Doctorate courses require full-time dedication?
The student must have time available to attend courses, develop activities in laboratories, participate in seminars, supervision meetings and prepare their dissertation or thesis. Scholarship holders are required to work full time, as per resolutions of the funding entities that grant the scholarships.

What times are the subjects taught?
From 2 pm to 6 pm.

Are there scholarships?
In general, Ufes post-graduate programs have scholarships from Capes, CNPq, Fapes, and other institutions and companies. Part of these grants comes from quotas allocated to the PósCom and the other from specific projects. The availability and offer of scholarships may vary depending on the boards' annual budget and the celebration/execution of projects/agreements. PósCom has internal criteria for the distribution of scholarships, established and supervised by the Scholarship Committee.
