About State University of Campinas – UNICAMP: The State University of Campinas was established in 1966 as a public university funded by the State of São Paulo. If the history of the Brazilian university is recent, that of UNICAMP is even more so. UNICAMP had its campus officially inaugurated on October 5th 1966, but only a few years later it was already recognized as one of the leading Brazilian and Latin American institutions of higher education, conducting advanced research and tackling important social issues. Today, UNICAMP can be considered a fully consolidated university. The University receives undergraduate and graduate students from all over Brazil and also from abroad. The University concentrates 15% of the total scientific production in Brazil and approximately 10% of the graduate courses. The result is its capability to maintain areas of scientific and technological compatibility with the main research centers in the world, through numerous international cooperation agreements. Students do not pay tuition since the University is financed by state funds.
