Before the start of classes, Deri organizes together with UniIn students a Reception week for new exchange students. Welcoming activities and support to the mandatory procedures are carried out for all students who register in advance. Among the activities offered are:

Service Sessions – DERI, Dac and UniIn members assist in filling out the forms and checking of the documents to be delivered to the Federal Police at the time of registration of the Visa, mandatory procedure for regularizing the situation of foreigners in the country. Questions are also asked about academic procedures, such as enrollment in subjects, use of services offered by Unicamp (restaurants, libraries), among
other subjects demanded by students.

Portuguese Interview – DERI, Dac and UniIn members help with the organization of students to carry out the leveling interviews in Portuguese, offered by CEL. The interviews take place on the same days and times they are offered at the Service Sessions, so that the volunteer participants (DERI, Dac and UniIn) can assist foreign students in the application process às special students.

Welcome meeting – It is an event organized by DERI in partnership with UniIn, which intends to introduce new students to the main services of the University, as Cecom, DAC, SAE, BC, CEL, UniIn. The welcome meeting is a great way to meet other international students and to learn about practical and social aspects of life in Brazil. In this event we always have a cultural presentation related to Brazilian culture, so it is worth participating.

Other activities that can be offered, according to availability, are the Tour through the city of Campinas and the visit to the stadiums of Ponte Preta and Guarani, the city’s soccer teams.

Further information will be sent to you by email.
