The Graduate Program in Systematics, Animal Taxonomy, and Biodiversity opens two admission processes per year for new students. Prior to application in the admission process, the candidate must obtain a letter of acceptance from a supervisor accredited in the Program.
The admission process usually involves four steps:
- Specific knowledge test
- English language proficiency test
- Inquiry about the research project
- Curriculum analysis
Alumni from the Graduate Program in Systematics, Animal Taxonomy, and Biodiversity are exempt from Steps 1 and 2. Foreign candidates whose native language is English, or holders of English proficiency certificates issued by recognized external agencies (e.g., TOEFL) are also exempt from Stage 2, provided that the scores established in the Call for Admission are respected.
For application in the admission process, candidates must submit the completed and signed Application Form, along with the other documents established in the Call for Admission.
