Being located in a city at the center of Portugal, it is close to everything. And the quality of life is excellent. In addition, the living cost is much lower.
Our institution has just over two thousand students, who are spread over the three schools, a fact that brings people closer to our community. This close relationship involves employees, non-teachers and teachers, who ensure the quality of teaching. Thus, we demonstrate that we are one of the best options for studying in Portugal, both in terms of cost and quality.
You have equal status with any Portuguese student applying under the same conditions as them to all IPT programmes. For Bachelor’s Degrees, applications must be made through the Concurso Nacional de Acesso ao Ensino Superior Público (CNAES), the main access route to higher education in Portugal.
