UFP (Universidade Fernando Pessoa) was founded in 1996. This young private university in Porto is named after one of the most important writers in Portuguese history. The university's motto is to innovate in knowledge and in teaching methods, on which it prides itself. UFP's student community promotes several events for international students, including an academy where students get to improve their skills across the board in several areas that will increase their employability. To get to UFP, you can either take the metro’s yellow line to the “Pólo Universitário” station, or one of several buses servicing the area (300, 301, 304, 600, 603, 704).

Porto is a city with character. Studying in Porto is all about living and loving that work-hard, party-hard spirit. From the welcoming weeks (so-called Praxe) to celebrating graduation at the Queima das Fitas, student traditions embrace this.
Eat the best sandwich in the world - the Francesinha - try the famous local Port wine, and enjoy the student spots such as Ribeira and Piolho with your friends, or just meeting new people.
If you’re going to study here, we have apartments in Porto for Erasmus and other international students.
