In August 2019, UFMG launched a Minor in International Studies (Formação Transversal em Estudos Internacionais). The course, which is taught entirely in English or Spanish, offers subjects at the undergraduate level with an international or comparative focus providing a truly plural environment in national, ethnic, and value terms.

Every semester disciplines will be offered in several areas of knowledge such as: Life Sciences and Health; Humanities, Applied Social Sciences and Arts; and Exact and Technological Sciences.


All international students on mobility at UFMG can participate. For more information on enrolling, send an email to
