Ranking Universitário Folha[edit]

Brazilian government evaluation[edit]

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, does not participate of such evaluation, which is mainly for Federal universities and USP is not one of them.
