The University of Pernambuco (Portuguese: Universidade de Pernambuco, UPE; formerly Fundação de Ensino Superior de Pernambuco, FESP) is a public state university located in Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil.[1]

Every year almost 4,000 seats of UPE are offered in Brazilian's universities entry exam, the National High School Exam (ENEM). The competition rate is over 12 applicants for each seat, in general.[2][3]

UPE is well positioned in Brazilian's universities rankings, such as Guia do Estudante[4] and RUF,[5] with many courses being between the 30 best of Brazil.

History

In 1966, the faculties of Medical Sciences of Pernambuco (founded in 1950), Dentistry of Pernambuco (1955), Sciences of the Administration of Pernambuco (1965) joined forces with the Polytechnic School of Pernambuco (1912) to form the initial nucleus of the "Pernambuco Higher Education Foundation - FESP", which became, at the beginning of the 1990s, into the "University of Pernambuco", acquiring public character and assuming its social role.

In addition, the School of Physical Education (founded in 1946) and the Faculty of Teacher Training of Garanhuns (1966), of Nazaré da Mata (1966) and of Petrolina (1968) joined the University of Pernambuco.

In 1976 was created the Institute of Biological Sciences of the University of Pernambuco, a centralizer unit to the basic disciplines of the courses of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing and Physical Education.

In this way, the UPE has a decentralized campus in several cities of the state (Arcoverde, Caruaru, Garanhuns, Nazaré da Mata, Palmares, Petrolina, Salgueiro and Serra Talhada, in addition to having implemented distance courses of Public Administration, Biological Sciences, Letters and Pedagogy in the municipalities of Fernando de Noronha, Floresta, Garanhuns, Nazaré da Mata, Ouricuri, Palmares, Petrolina, Surubim and Tabira).
