If you wish to undertake a mobility period (one semester or a full academic year) at the University of Porto, you must submit your application online. It's very easy. Here's what you need to know:
To access and fill in the online application form to perform a mobility period at the U.Porto, students must follow all the steps listed here.
The Application Form should be completed and submitted online. Finally, the document must be printed, duly signed by the student and by the mobility Coordinators, stamped and uploaded, together with the Transcript of Records.
Important: Please note that submitting your Application does not guarantee a place as a mobility student at the U.Porto. All international mobility students are officially accepted only upon the confirmation with the Letter of Acceptance issued 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.
The deadlines for the submission of applications are:
- Academic year: May 31 (results announced from June 15)
- 1st semestre: May 31 (results announced from June 15)
- 2nd semester: October 15 (results announced from November 15)
Example: If the student wishes to undertake a period of mobility in the 1st semester of the school year 2016/2017, you must send your application until May 31, 2016.
Please remember that, students who cannot attend classes as from the first day (check the academic calendar for 2016/2017), should arrive at least up to the first week after the classes start.
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.
Some international mobility programmes guarantee tuition fees exemption at the Host Institution, including registration fees, exams, access to laboratories, libraries and other University facilities. Thus, international students who are undertaking a period of study at the U.Porto under the Erasmus+ programme as well as within other Bilateral Cooperation Agreements may benefit from fee waiving. Mobility students are nonetheless responsible for other small charges, such as school insurance, accommodation, Portuguese Language course, photocopies, laboratory materials as happens with regular students.
For more information, please contact the U.Porto International Office, the structure responsible for monitoring and assist international students before (application support) and during the mobility period.
