DILI, 21 october 2022 (TATOLI) – The University of Brasilia (UnB) expressed interest to offer scholarships for Timorese students to pursue higher education at UnB in the future.

Representative of UnB, Associate Professor, Kelly Silva made the comments today at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between UnB and UCT, in Dili.

“UnB is interested to receive Timorese students to pursue their higher education at UnB. But we will first have a discussion with the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Culture (MoHESC) to know the specific majors for Timorese students to study at UnB,” she said.

The University of Brasilia has also signed a memorandum of understanding with the Timorese Catholic University (UCT) on the academic research program. 

Silva said UnB will have further discussions with UCT to find out the specific research areas in which both universities will cooperate in the future.

“I will present UCT’s requests to UnB. We will make efforts to respond to the needs of UCT in the future,” she said.

At the same place, the UCT Rector said that signing the MoU with UnB is important as it will help UCT to develop its academic research program.

UCT is the youngest university in Timor-Leste, which opened its 2022 academic year in march 2022.
