Application procedure under the student statute of emergency situation due to humanitarian reasons - Ukraine
As a response to the humanitarian situation caused the undergoing military conflict in Ukraine, the Portuguese government decided to grant temporary protection to people displaced from that country, by allowing them to apply for the emergency student status for humanitarian reasons.
One interested in enrolling in a study programme at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto, should send to firstname.lastname@example.org
. The application will only be considered valid for analysis after the presentation of the certificate of issue of residence permit under the temporary protection regime, issued by the Portuguese Immigration and Borders Service (SEF)

.The academic offer of this Faculty can be consulted here. Applicants should be aware that classes are taught in Portuguese.
Unless there is a contrary legal provision, the attribution of the emergency student status for humanitarian reasons is valid until the study programme’s completion, waiving the need for annual renewal of the status. If a student decides to interrupt their academic path and afterwards returns to the study programme they were attending at U. Porto, the student can only maintain the referred status in case the granting of temporary protection is still valid.
In case the candidate presents the European Qualifications Passport for Refugees
, the Faculty may use this instrument to verify the fulfilment of the entrance and admission requirements of the study programme.
Students to whom the emergency student status for humanitarian reasons is granted are subject to the regime for tuition and administrative fees that applies to national students, except for the application fee, which will not be charged. These students may also benefit from all available support mechanisms in the scope of social services and therefore can apply for both scholarship and accommodation.
