Non-regular students

Unisinos Graduate Programs admit non-regular students in some courses of the professional master’s degree. Non-regular students are students from other Unisinos Graduate Programs, other higher education institutions, and undergraduate or graduate students not affiliated with any Graduate Program. This opportunity allows non-regular students to know some of the courses offered by Unisinos.

Each semester the number of available places for these courses is announced and the programs offer enrollment for students who show evidence of ability to pursue them. Therefore, they need to be approved by the Coordination Committee and register as provided in the program regulations.
