Veuillez trouver ci-dessous l’appel à des mobilité lancé par l’université de Porto.
We are pleased to inform you that the call for applications for students interested in spending a mobility period at the U.Porto will open on 15th April!
So, it is with great pleasure that we send you the detailed information about the Application Procedures for next Academic Year 2017/2018, that students should read and follow carefully. Moreover, you may consult the Info Sheet of the University of Porto, for additional information.
To ensure a good preparation and implementation of the agreed mobility, we kindly ask for your collaboration in the wide dissemination of the given information to the Departments, Coordinators and potential applicants of your Institution.
We take this opportunity to inform you that regarding applications within Bilateral Cooperation Agreements and/or Specific Addendums, the number of places available and agreed on between our institutions must always be confirmed. Considering the high number of agreements, it is rather frequent the inexistence of pre-defined places. For this reason, in case of doubt regarding the number of mobility places available, we recommend that Partner Institutions contact directly the U.Porto Faculty(ies)
All Applications should be submitted ONLINE.

2 – Preparation of the Mobility
Students should organize their travel according to the Academic Calendar of the U.Porto, ensuring they will arrive to the beautiful city of Porto on time to participate in all academic and welcoming activities specially planned and organized by the University of Porto. Students that, for any reason, cannot attend classes from the first day, should arrive no later than the end of the first week of classes.
In order to help clarifying the most frequent doubts from international students, we recommend to carefully read our « Being International at U.Porto » and « Living » sections, so as to better prepare your mobility.
The U.Porto has recently launched « Stories@Porto » a collection of short video testimonials where students from different nationalities share their experience at the University of Porto.
Each course´s teaching language is identified in the Education Offer of the U.Porto.
It is noteworthy that most of the subjects lectured at the University of Porto are taught in Portuguese. Although the U.Porto does not impose any mandatory language requirements to exchange students, each student must check with the Faculty/Department the specific requirements (linguistic and academic) to enable his/her application to the U.Porto. It is worth mentioning that U.Porto may also provide a tutorial support in English to students that request for it and whenever possible. Also note that, some teachers may allow students to write assignments and take exams in other languages, namely in English, but this situation can only be agreed upon arrival in each individual case.
More detailed information about the Portuguese Language Courses offered at the U.Porto, is available online.
