Additional Requirements for the Portuguese School

In addition to the general application requirements, applicants to the Portuguese School must submit the following:

Level 1.5 for Spanish Speakers

Please indicate your level of proficiency in Spanish:
beginning, intermediate, advanced, or native speaker. You may include this in the essay portion of your online application or send an email to the coordinator of the Portuguese School.

Levels 2, 3, and 4

Please submit a recent research paper or composition, written in Portuguese and graded by a professor. If a graded paper is not available, a short essay (one or two pages) on any topic is acceptable. Since this sample will be used to assess your placement level, do not send work that has been corrected and rewritten.

In addition, please provide a brief statement (in English) indicating where, when, and with whom you have studied Portuguese. This may be included in the text portion of your online application, or you may send it via regular mail or by email to the coordinator of the Portuguese School.
