The Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (UFRRJ), headquartered in the state of RJ, originates from the Escola Superior de Agricultura e Medicina Veterinária (ESAMV), created in 1910. Member of the system of Federal Institutions of Higher Education (IFES) and linked to the Higher Education Secretariat of the Ministry of Education (Sesu-MEC), UFRRJ offers vacancies in 56 on-campus undergraduate programs, 2 distance undergraduate programs, 34 graduate programs, including professional masters’; and academic master’s and doctorate degree programs.
The university has four campuses — Seropédica, Nova Iguaçu (Multidisciplinary Institute/IM), Campos dos Goytacazes (CCG) and Três Rios (Três Rios Institute/ITR) — which meet the growing demand for public higher education in the country and, more specifically, in regions furthest from the big centers, such as the western metropolitan region of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Baixada Fluminense and regions of the Middle Paraíba and the Costa Verde Sul in the state of Rio de Janeiro.
