  • Unesp is one of the largest research universities in Brazil offering high quality public education. The university is 100% funded by the State of Sao Paulo.
  • The Brazilian Higher Education System is composed by Universities and Higher Education Institutions, such as Faculties and University Centers. To be classified as a University, an institution must offer courses in all knowledge areas and develop research. Brazil has 185 universities, being 98 public institutions maintained by federal, state and city governments. At present, there are 59 federal universities, 34 state and 5 municipal institutions. The State of Sao Paulo has 8 public universities. Among the federal institutions, there is UFSCar, UNIFESP and UFABC. The cities of Sao Caetano in the greater Sao Paulo and Taubate at Vale do Paraiba have city (municipal) universities. USP, UNICAMP and UNESP are the 3 universities maintained by the State of Sao Paulo. They are among the largest universities in Latin America and develop 40% of the research produced in Brazil.
  • UNESP is a young (new) institution founded in 1976. Our university was created from higher education isolated institutions that already existed in Sao Paulo, therefore, some of our schools are older that the University itself. Despite being young, UNESP has a remarking position in university rankings, improving its classification every year. At present at the ARWU it is classified between 300 and 400 in the world ranking, 134 and 162 in the Americas and between 3 and 5 in Brazil. At the Ibero-American Ranking from SCImago Institution Ranking ( SIR) 2010, UNESP is classified in 5th place. This ranking considers the amount and quality of the publications of the university researchers and positions the institution as a research university. A characteristic that differs UNESP from other institutions is the fact that it is a multi-campus institution, with 23 campuses spread throughout the state of Sao Paulo. Among other factors, this characteristic provides a strong interaction between the institution and regions were it is established offering international students the possibility to live in well structured cities with high quality life style.
  • As we said Unesp is present in 23 cities of the state of Sao Paulo. The largest distance between any of the campuses is 100km.
  • UNESP offers courses in almost every knowledge area.
  • Among the Biological and Health Sciences, we have courses in Veterinary, Medicine, Dentistry and Biological Sciences, etc.
  • Among the exact sciences Unesp has several engineering courses, such as the traditional Mechanical, Civil and Electrical Engineering, but also innovative courses, such as Environmental Engineering. We also have courses in the areas of Physics, Chemistry and Computer Sciences.
  • In Human Sciences Unesp offers several courses, such as Law, International Relations, Social Sciences, Arts, Geography, History, etc.
  • UNESP has some of the main graduate programs in Brazil, such as: Geography, Portuguese and Linguistics, in the field of human sciences; Animal Science, Aquaculture, Biosciences and Biotechnology, Motricity Sciences, Dentistry, Veterinary Sciences and Biological Sciences; Chemistry and Physics in the field of Exact Sciences.
  • UNESP has graduate programs in various knowledge areas, with a special focus in Agrarian and Health Sciences.
  • As observed in the information above, UNESP is the third institution that provides PhD titles in the Americas, after University of Sao Paulo and University of Austin – Texas. This information highlights the high competency of the institution in the formation of graduate students and the development of research.
  • UNESP´s graduate programs develop different research activities in several areas. The areas where the institution has a high performance are listed above and includes areas that goes from bioenergy and sea sciences to public policies, climate change, nanotechnology, etc.
  • Another initiative is the creation of an institute in the area of bioenergy. It is an initiative of the 3 universities of Sao Paulo ( UNESP, USP and UNICAMP) that together with the state government and FAPESP ( Sao Paulo State Research Support Foundation) are investing 170 million dollars for the development of a structure that permits studies in the areas of Biomass to Bioenergy, Biofuel Production, Application on automotive motor, Biorefineries, alcoholchemistry, oil chemistry and Sustainability aspects. The center that is being created at UNESP will be used by the 90 researchers that act in the area.
  • UNESP is developing two great initiatives to increase it research activities. The first one is the creation of an Advanced Ocean Studies Center with an initial budget of 12 million Euros provided by the federal government. The University will build this study center in São Vicente, city that hosts its Marine Biology undergraduate course. The center will be formed by 117 researchers from 13 research units of Unesp that work with ocean studies . The facilities will be used by UNESP´s researchers that develop studies in the respective area.

      • Both universities agree to send/receive N students per year.
      • Scholarships will be offered by the receiving institution.
      • Airfare and health insurance could be offered by the sending institution. 
      • The participant universities agree not to charge tuition fees for the incoming students.
    • Analyze undergraduate programs in which there is a possibility to implement double degree programs in the future.
    Concrete Proposals
    • Develop a pilot program of "research prospection": fund researcher’s mobility for missions of up to one month at the partner university in order to identify possibilities for joint work. Both universities will jointly define research areas of interest .
    • Identify researchers who are willing to guide joint supervision (co-tutele) thesis for Brazilian and Chinese students.
