Universities in Portugal

Through the Bologna Process, higher education in Portugal is aligned to other countries in Europe, making Portuguese Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degree and Doctorates comparable across the continent. Similar to other countries, Portugal distinguishes between primarily research-driven universities and more practice-oriented polytechnics. Most courses are taught in Portuguese, but there is a growing number of courses taught in English – particularly at the Master’s level. Tuition fees in Portugal are relatively modest. Public universities generally charge less than 1,500 EUR per year for their Bachelor and Master programmes; some private universities may charge up to 4,000 EUR per year. The largest university in Portugal is the University of Lisbon (ULisboa), located in the country’s capital. Founded in 1911, today there are nearly 50,000 students. It offers a broad range of subjects and is well-respected internationally. Number two by size, the University of Porto is also among the highest-placed Portuguese universities in the world rankings, and 10% of its students are international. Founded in 1911, it is known for its strong academic research. Portugal’s oldest university looks back at a history of more than 700 years: The University of Coimbra was founded in 1290 and today educates some 22,000 students. This university benefits from one of the largest cohorts of international students in Portugal.
