One of the aspects of the internationalization project at the University of Brasília is the support for, permanent or periodic, academic mobility programs. UnB’s International Affairs Office, through its Coordination of Special Programs, offers important support for foreign students, who come to UnB through government programs. The actions to support students from PEC-G (Undergraduate Students Program Agreement) are the result of joint work with the Diretoria de Acompanhamento e Integração Acadêmica – Decanato de Graduação (Board of Academic Integration and Follow Up – Dean of Graduation) - DAIA/DEG, Diretoria de Desenvolvimento Social – Decanato de Assuntos Comunitários (Board of Social Development - Dean of Community Affairs) - DDS/DAC, Secretaria de Administração Acadêmica (Secretariat of Academic Administration) - SAA, besides other bodies and programs (University Restaurant - RU, University Hospital - HUB, Portuguese Language Program - PEPPFOL, Institutes, etc.). It is also intended to increase the cooperation and interaction with the Undergraduate Coordination of the relevant courses.

Since the end of 1980s, UnB has been receiving and training PEC-G students from Latin American and African continents. UnB has trained more than 250 students. Currently, 72 students study at the Institution, according to the following tables:
