New deadlines for qualifying exams and defenses

In 2020, due to the exceptionality of the pandemic, CEPG suspended for the time being the term limts for the completion of Master’s and Ph.D. courses.

Taking into account the Resolução CEPG nº 03 (April 24th 2020), particularly Article 3º, PPGHIS, in its January 2021 meeting, has approved also exceptional criteria, to balance the extension of terms and the CAPES’ requirements regarding the expected time for course conclusion, which are important for the Program’s evaluation.

Therefore, defenses are reccomended to take place before the end of the current term (September), which represents an extension of circa three months compared to the usual deadlines.

Qualifying exams may be more flexible regarding deadlines.
