A letter to our patners about COVID-19

News / 2020-03-19

Dear partners,

We are contacting you to update you on the recent preventive measures that Brazil has adopted.  This week, government authorities have decided to close schools, Higher Education Institutions and cancel / postpone events with agglomerations, as well as canceling some international flights.

The University of Pernambuco, in solidarity with the current situation, is making every effort to help the competent authorities in combating the spread of COVID-19.

Following the guidelines of health organizations for the protection of those involved, the University of Pernambuco has decided to suspend all academic activities, including national and international mobility (IN and OUT) for both teachers and students, as well as internships for medical students until  new recommendations from the authorities.

After March 31, representatives from the University of Pernambuco will comment on new deadlines for the return of activities.  Until then, the administrative sectors will be meeting the demands remotely through their specific emails and contacts.

 +55 81 3183.3662

 We are working hard to support our partners, students and teachers, so don’t hesitate to contact us by email should you have any requests.
