*The eventual call of non-placed applicants will be made by e-mail sent to the address indicated on the application process. Applicants who are called will have 24 hours to reply and say whether they are interested in the place available. After this deadline, and if there is no reply from the applicant called, this applicant will lose the chance to occupy the place available and the following non-placed applicant in the ranking list will be called.

Notes:

1 - For the 1st, 2nd and 3rd phases for application, classes begin in the 1st semester (September 2019) of the academic year 2019/2020 - except DLIT (see Information for applications - DLIT 2019/2020).
Applicants admitted in the 4th phase for application start their classes in the 2nd semester (February 2020) of the academic year 2019/2020.

2 - International students who need to obtain a residence visa for study purposes must carefully check the deadlines of each application phase (namely: posting of the results, enrolment and beginning of the academic year) and make sure that they have enough time to ensure all the necessary procedures. This is particularly relevant in the 3rd phase and subsequent phases for application.

Ranking Criteria

The ranking criteria are defined per cycle of studies (see information for each cycle of studies).
Some cycles of studies or application phases may have minimum requirements for admission, such as a ranking grade equal to, or higher than, a specific value out of 200.
Ranking grade: the result obtained by using the calculation formula provided for in the ranking criteria.

Notes:
1 – In the 1st and 2nd phases, only applicants who provide supporting documents attesting that they have completed the necessary qualifications to apply will be admitted.

2 – In the 3rd phase and subsequent phases, applicants who have completed or are expected to complete the cycle of studies by the end of the application deadline* will be accepted for ranking. If applicants do not have a graduation certificate yet, they must present a declaration of honour stating that they have completed the necessary qualifications to apply. Enrolment will be subject to the presentation of the corresponding certificate.

* Except for cycles of studies which have other admission conditions to operate.

3 - For the cycles of studies that have an interview as ranking criteria, the scheduling of the interview will be done by e-mail sent to the e-mail address indicated in the application.

Documents Required

  • ID document (ID Card / Citizen Card / Passport) or declaration containing the identification data (mandatory);
  • Graduation certificate regarding a higher education degree (mandatory)*;
    - In the 3rd phase and subsequent phases for application, if you have already graduated but do not have the corresponding certificate yet, you must submit a declaration indicating the completion date and the final grade you expect to obtain, and your enrolment will be subject to the presentation of the corresponding certificate within the deadlines indicated;
    - For qualifications obtained abroad see note (1) below;
  • Certificate of the higher education institution listing the curricular units in which you got a passing grade, indicating the regime (semester/year) and the number of credit units/ECTS. (mandatory)*;

(1) Notes for applicants from foreign higher education:

Documents, including in digital format, must be authenticated by consular offices or embassies of Portugal located in the country where the qualification was obtained or, for countries that acceded to the Hague Convention, hold the Hague Apostille of the country where the qualification was obtained. The same applies to the translations (mandatory) of documents whose original language is not Portuguese, Spanish, French or English.
If the authentication with the Hague Apostille is done on a certified copy of the original document, during this process the signature(s) that appear on the original document must be certified so that the capacity of the signatory(ies) of the original document is verified and ensured..

In addition to these, you may be required to present other documents depending on the cycle of studies you are applying for (information available in the application process).

Documents can be submitted unauthenticated in the application stage. However, admitted applicants who have any pending document in their application process (e.g. unauthenticated certificates) will only be able to enrol after they deliver/send the said document.
