New graduate students are usually selected at the end of each year (between November and December) to begin studies in February/March of the following year. The registration period for those interested in applying for the PPGEM is usually open from September to November every year. The documents and the required information can be sent through an online form.
To participate in the selection process, the candidate must show a good command of the English language through certificates issued by accredited entities. The candidate is also required to submit a brief research project.
The details of the selection processes are defined in specific notices commonly published between August and October every year.
Scholarships are available for those who successfully pass the selection process and dedicate full time to the course. Scholarships are granted by funding agencies at their sole discretion.
