We strongly advise students to read the Online Application Guide also available in this page (right sidebar).
For a more effective and easier way to fill the Application, we recommend students to organize all the information with the responsible for the mobility at the Home Institution, before accessing the Application Form.
The Application Form should be completed online and submitted, then printed, signed by the student and the Erasmus Coordinator, stamped and upload.
Please note that submitting the Application Form does not guarantee a place as a mobility student of the U.Porto. All foreign mobility students are officially accepted only upon the confirmation with Letter of Acceptance by the U.Porto.
The application form/Learning Agreement must be signed by the student, and both Local or/and Institutional Coordinators of the Home University.
For detailed information about the Academic Calendar, course programmes, the ECTS guide and dates of the exams, please consult the Education Offer of each Faculty. The website contains detailed information on the degrees taught and on the ECTS credits allocated (refer to "Degrees"). You can also contact directly the Faculty of interest. The contact details of the Faculties are also available online, on the same page.
Please note that almost all courses of the University of Porto are taught in Portuguese. Therefore, we recommend students to have some preparation of Portuguese before travelling to Porto. Some teachers may allow students to write assignments and take exams in other languages, namely in English, but this situation can only be agreed upon arrival in each individual case.
The deadline to submit applications is:
Please remember that, should you fail to attend classes as from the first day, you should arrive at least up to the second week after the classes start.
Students should upload the "Transcript of Records" together with the Application Form.
The Transcript of Records is a certificate where all courses taken are listed, alongside the corresponding ECTS credits, the national or local credits (if applicable), the grades obtained according to the national scale and, if possible, the ECTS grades awarded. This document, which is a pre-requisite of the ECTS rules passed by the European Commission, is part of your application. Therefore, we cannot officially accept your application if this document is not included.
The LLP-Erasmus programme assume fee waiving at the host institution, including fees due to registration, exams, access to laboratories and libraries.
Therefore, this is applicable to all foreign students spending a period of studies at the U.Porto within the scope of the LLP-Erasmus programme and Cooperation Agreements. Mobility students are nonetheless responsible for small charges, such as school insurance, accommodation, Portuguese course, photocopies, laboratory materials.
Finally, we strongly recommend that you carefully read our Foreign Student Guide before leaving to Porto.
