It is a story that has been successfully repeated every single year for over three decades. Half of the story involves the hundreds of students from the University of Porto who travel to all four corners of the world with the goal of enriching their university curriculum. The other half involves the students of over 100 nationalities that arrive at our faculties and research centres to take advantage of the opportunities that the most cosmopolitan of Portuguese universities has to offer. Together, they embody the investment that U.Porto has been making in the area of academic mobility.

At the very core of this investment, which has turned us into a "gateway to the world", are the thousands of students who, every year, undertake a period of "IN - INcoming" mobility (to U.Porto from abroad) with support from our University. These opportunities are offered by way of initiatives such as the Erasmus + Programme or bilateral cooperation agreements negotiated between the U.Porto and academic institutions across the globe.
