Embarking on a journey of global education is now more feasible than ever for Brazilian students, thanks to the acceptance of ENEM (Exame Nacional do Ensino Médio) scores by universities worldwide. In this comprehensive guide, we explore the opportunities available, providing insights on countries such as Portugal, France, Canada, the United States, and Ireland.
With over 2 million Brazilians receiving their ENEM results recently, the impact of this exam extends beyond national borders. HAYMAN-WOODWARD Human Capital’s Global Director of Human Resources, Ana Paula Montanha, emphasizes the significance of this development in expanding educational horizons. She notes, “This not only reinforces the high-quality evaluation of ENEM but also encourages students to explore new cultures and educational systems.”
The inclusion of ENEM scores as admission criteria in international universities opens a window of opportunities for Brazilian students. Portugal, known for its acceptance without a language proficiency exam, presents numerous options for applicants. France, with its specific requirements, and countries like Canada, the United States, and Ireland are also part of this global shift towards educational inclusivity.
Montanha highlights the need for thorough preparation, as universities abroad may have additional criteria such as English proficiency exams and academic records. However, she underscores the accessibility of studying abroad with proper research and preparation.
Portugal stands out as a European destination with several institutions open to ENEM applicants. In France, universities like the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon and École Normale Supérieure welcome Brazilian students. For those aspiring to study in Canada, prestigious institutions like the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia are ENEM-friendly. In the United States, universities such as New York University and Emory University embrace Brazilian applicants with ENEM scores. Additionally, Ireland, with its English proficiency requirement, accepts ENEM scores for admission to universities like University College Dublin.
Montanha advises potential applicants to be aware that the acceptance of ENEM scores extends beyond the latest exam year, varying by institution. While the year of the ENEM may not be a decisive factor, other elements, such as English proficiency test scores, carry significant weight in the admission process.
In conclusion, the pathway to international education has widened for Brazilian students, and the acceptance of ENEM scores by global universities is a testament to the evolving landscape of education.
