Being at UFRJ is living a dream. In addition to graduation, there are many branches that you can follow there, such as scientific initiation, participating in free language courses or even working in them, participating in lectures that usually include very important people in the area, pedagogical support, and what differentiates the university on others it is contact with the best professors in the country. They know a lot about the field they teach.
As a public institution, the infrastructure is not the best. At my college, I’ve seen toilets out of toilet paper and classrooms with broken paintwork, and in some, the air conditioning doesn’t work.
People, from what I see in my course, are very welcoming and know how to deal with social differences.
I highly recommend.
Ufrj is an amazing college, always among the best in the country, it was number one in the last federal evaluation! Like all public educational institutions in Brazil, our infrastructure is left out. As a student at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at UFRJ, I can say that it is sad to see the situation of our building and the courses that inhabit it. However, the university city is a place where science and research are increasingly connected with the city and proposals for effective action inside and outside the countryside. The college expands to practice life in our city!View more
Most teachers are very good and we are able to learn a lot. Opportunities to go beyond the classroom are great, with study groups, TA opportunities,etc. The only thing I would say is that the facilities could be a lot better.View more
FAU UFRJ is one of the best universities in the country, the problem is that the current government cares little about education and science. I love my course, I had the pleasure of working with amazing professors who opened my mind and inspired me to continue studying with enthusiasm! The building is beautiful, by Jorge Moreira Machado, but was scrapped by the lack of investment and care. We study how and where we can, on the mezzanine, in the corridors, different classes sometimes need to share the same classroom, which can be a little confusing. It is very sad to see so many people willing to study and teach without the necessary infrastructure to do so. Despite everything, architecture is my passion and FAU is my second, beyond all difficulties, FAU inspires, the struggle inspires and that always wins! #ForaBolsonaroView more
UFRJ is amazing! We have lots of opportunities to learn outside the classroom – such as extension projects, research laboratories, free language courses, and mandatory internships, among others. The institution has several amazing teachers, some that whom I will take as professional colleagues for life! Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood in UFRJ was an experience I will never forget – so many experiences and growth opportunities!
There are a lot of great teachers, with deep knowledge of their courses’ subject. Sadly, we face some structural problems, in which our physical spaces’ resources are limited (e.g. sometimes we do not have toilet paper, paper towels or soap in the bathroom, or our classrooms do not have whiteboard markers) and the teachers pitch in to solve those issues. And, yet, the institution was voted as one of the best in Brazil and Latin America!
For me, the variety of teachers in every subject is a good thing, cause it’s possible to change and learn different things from them, also, how much they know about what they teach is a quality that needs to be highlighted.
Although UFRJ is a kind of a “city” some buildings need some repairs and maybe a reconstruction, they have the space to support so many students, but still need to change some aspects like certain locations that are dangerous, especially at night because don’t have the proper lighting.
The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro is the best university in the country, among the best in Latin America. Teaching, research and extension make life at the university incomparable, in addition to all student assistance given through scholarships, housing, food, transport, etc.View more
The university is filled with the best professors who practice serious and detailed studies towards a great diversity of fields. UFRJ campus is pleasantly large, It contains a free system of public transport inside so nobody has to walk considerable distances and 3 university restaurants which charge low prices.
The friends, experiences and the profound acknowledgement is worth all the facilities and accommodation issues every single student has to deal with unless you need to live in one of the university accommodations (where basic conditions are much more compromised).
I strongly recommend Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro if you are a local in the city or the state, particularly if you are up to Arts and Humanities like me.
