By having the most complete offer in learning programmes available for Higher Education in Portugal, the U.Porto’s 15 schools (14 faculties + 1 business school) provide unique conditions to pursue an outstanding academic record which will be valued in the job market. All of this takes place in a multicultural learning environment committed to the highest standards of excellence.

The courses at the U.Porto are remarkably diverse: over 600 training programmes (graduate, postgraduate and lifelong) guarantee solutions for all types of students starting from 1st cycle undergraduates up to Masters degree and Doctoral degree students. We also offer a vast number of lifelong learning courses, advanced training courses and specialisation courses with a strong emphasis on the professional re-qualification of the participants.

Education at the U.Porto is aimed at employability and an immediate inclusion in the job market. Our curricula respond to market needs and focus on “hands on” learning, which is in permanent contact with professionals from various institutions. As a result, U.Porto students have a high level of employment rate. Every year, major Portuguese companies contact the University looking for potential employees.

These results come from having a learning/teaching model based on multidisciplinary skills, autonomy, entrepreneurship and adjustment to the challenges of the job market. At U.Porto, you have the privilege to learn from a highly qualified and specialised teaching staff, have access to advanced laboratory equipment and technology, be able to study in modern libraries or enjoy one of the many opportunities for academic mobility. All of this is done in close connection with scientific research groups and regional and national industries and companies, as well as with the city’s two central hospitals.
