Rankings of universities in Brazil
Universities in Brazil are ranked in a number of ways, including both national and international ranks.
Ranking Universitário FolhaEdit
Brazil's largest newspaper Folha de S. Paulo organizes, since 2012, a national ranking of universities with criteria akin to those used by the better known worldwide rankings: research, teaching, internationalization, innovation and market value.
Brazilian government evaluationEdit
This section's factual accuracy may be compromised due to out-of-date information. (October 2014)
Higher education evaluations are also conducted by the Brazilian Government; specifically by Inep (Instituto Nacional de Estudos e Pesquisas Educacionais; English: National Institute of Studies and Research). The Government uses a General Index of Courses (Portuguese: Índice Geral de Cursos; IGC) to determinate the quality of Brazilian's higher education (graduate and post-graduate courses) in Brazil. It's important to add that Universidade de São Paulo, one of the most prestigious universities in the country, has been participating in the IGC since 2013 as part of a technical cooperation with Inep that will last three years, during which time the results concerning the university's courses will not be disclosed. Only then will the university decide whether to fully participate in the government evaluation.
