Faculty & Staff

As a student directly enrolled at the Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora (UFJF), you’ll be instructed by professors who are accustomed to teaching Brazilian students in a classroom style in which students typically need to take their own initiative. While it’s rare for professors to hold office hours, they’re likely to be both approachable and helpful if you talk with them after class.

The International Relations Office at UFJF (known by its acronym in Portuguese as the CRI) is a key resource for foreign students as they take on a new academic experience at the university. The office will oversee and facilitate your enrollment in courses. It also provides general guidance, advice, and access for a wide range of activities at the university, in Juiz de Fora, and even in other cities and regions.
