University description (as per official university website)

In Minas Gerais, the first institution of higher education - the School of Pharmacy, Ouro Preto - date of 1839. In 1875 it established the School of Mines and in 1892 at the Republican period, the ancient capital of the state also earns the Law School.

In 1898, with the change of the capital, the Law School is transferred to Belo Horizonte. Then in 1907, it established the Free School of Dentistry, and four years later, the Faculty of Medicine and School of Engineering. And in 1911, there is the Pharmacy course, attached to the Free School of Dentistry.

The creation of a university in the state was part of the political project of the Conspirators. The idea, however, only came to fruition in 1927 with the founding of the University of Minas Gerais (UMG), a private, subsidized by the state, which arose from the union of the four schools of higher education then existing in Belo Horizonte. UMG remained at the state level until 1949, when it was federalized. Even in the 40s, was incorporated into the territorial patrimony of the University a large area in the Pampulha region, for the construction of University City. The first buildings erected in what is now the campus Pampulha were the Institute of Mechanics (now the Technical College) and the Rectory. The campus has only been effectively occupied by the university community in the '60s, with the start of construction of the buildings that now house the majority of academic units.

The current name - Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) - was only adopted in 1965.

At the time of federalization were already integrated into the UFMG School of Architecture and the faculties of Philosophy and Economics. Then, as part of its expansion and diversification, the University entered and created new units and courses. Appeared then, successively, the School of Nursing (1950), the Veterinary School (1961), the Conservatory of Music Mineiro (1962) and schools of Librarianship (1962), Fine Arts (1963) and Physical Education (1969) .

In 1968, the University Reform imposed profound changes to the organizational structure of the UFMG. This reform resulted in the split of the former School of Philosophy at many colleges and institutes. There emerged, therefore, the current Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities, the Institute of Biological Sciences, the Institute of Mathematical Sciences and their basic cycles, the Institute of Geosciences and the faculties of Arts and Education.

Now firmly established as an institution of reference for the rest of the country, UFMG continues expanding. Five courses were created in the last four years: Agronomy (Montes Claros), Performing Arts, Engineering Control and Automation, Computational Mathematics, Speech, and more recently, Nutrition. The opportunities to grow continuamemente ticket. Aside from Belo Horizonte, the entrance examination is now held in twelve cities within the state - Hafizabad, Count, Colonel Fabriciano Divinópolis, Governador Valadares, Juiz de Fora, Lavras, Montes Claros, Pouso Alegre, Sete Lagoas, Uberlândia and Viçosa .
