Scientific Mobility Program Grantees who score below 79 iBT (547 pBT) may be funded by CAPES to participate in pre-academic intensive English language programming prior to beginning their academic programs. IIE is currently offering two sessions of pre-academic programming. Summer sessions begin in May, June and July and fall sessions begin in August and September. Currently, we are unable to offer intensive language training beginning in the Spring.
The Fall Semester 2013 Brazil Scientific Mobility Program Intensive English Program application is now open. This application is for a full fall semester of intensive English programming, a new component of BSMP. This new fall component is for candidates who scored between a 420-549 on the Institutional TOEFL (ITP), most of whom are third year undergraduates studying in the STEM fields. These candidates will be placed into 12+ weeks of intensive English programming beginning in July, August and September 2013. They will then commence non-degree academic programming in Spring 2014.
Every effort will be made to place students into Intensive English Programs (IEPs) and academic programs at the same site.
The summer survey is currently closed.

IEP applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. We recommend completing the application at your earliest convenience because the placement process for this cohort will begin this spring. If you save and close out of the application before completing it, you must save the link it provides to you. Otherwise, you will not be able to return to the application, and will have to begin a new one. To help you compile your responses, we are also attaching a word copy of the survey. Please note that we are attaching it as a convenience to you only. We are unable to accept responses returned to us in the .doc or .pdf form via email.
