Dear mobility student, welcome to FPCEUP!

Our Faculty’s main goal is to encourage and promote mobility opportunities under the Erasmus Program and Cooperation Agreements as a form of students’ internationalization, providing them further cultural and life experiences which might contribute to their enrichment as citizens of the world.
We are certain that at the end of this experience you will take in your luggage a handful of new achievements, new skills and especially new friendships! We hope that this will be an opportunity to grow not only as a student but above all as a person.
Remember that, you are not alone in this great adventure, we're just right here, beside you!

Learning Agreement for Studies:

The Learning Agreement is a part of your application form online and it’s a study plan listing the courses you intend to attend during your mobility.

As the University of Porto uses the ECTS grading system, all courses have a number of ECTS credits which reflect the number of hours and amount of study workload the student has to accomplish in each course.

The credit is the total of all study activities for one course: lectures, seminars, practices, homework, reading, preparation for exams, writing essays, etc.. At the University of Porto, one credit corresponds to 27 hours of student total work. The credit load per semester is 30 ECTS and 60 ECTS for one academic year.

We strongly advise mobility students to sign up for a minimum of 20 ECTS per semester when applying.

Local grades are awarded on a scale of 0-20 (pass mark 10).
