  • Description
  • With ori­gins dat­ing back to the eigh­teenth cen­tury, the Uni­ver­sity of Porto is cur­rently the largest edu­ca­tion and research insti­tu­tion in Por­tu­gal.

    Close to 31,000 stu­dents, 2,300 teach­ers and researchers along with 1,700 admin­is­tra­tive staff attend its 15 schools and 69 sci­en­tific research units, spread across 3 uni­ver­sity cam­puses located in the city of Porto.

    With 14 fac­ul­ties and a busi­ness school, the Uni­ver­sity of Porto pro­vides an excep­tional vari­ety of courses, cov­er­ing the whole range of study areas and all lev­els of higher edu­ca­tion. In fact, offer­ing over 700 train­ing pro­grammes per year (from degrees to con­tin­u­ous pro­fes­sional train­ing), the Uni­ver­sity of Porto has teach­ing solu­tions for everyone.

    Teach­ing staff com­pris­ing 1,860 full-​time equiv­a­lent teach­ers (71% of which PhDs) ensures a high qual­ity of train­ing that makes the Uni­ver­sity of Porto the most sought-​after Uni­ver­sity in Por­tu­gal and the cho­sen uni­ver­sity for can­di­dates with high­est grades.

    Cur­rently, nearly 31,000 stu­dents (6,500 post­grad­u­ates) attend the 273 degrees, mas­ters and doc­toral courses of the Uni­ver­sity of Porto. Every year, around 2,000 inter­na­tional stu­dents choose this uni­ver­sity to com­plete their higher education.

    With 69 research units, the Uni­ver­sity is respon­si­ble for over 20% of the Por­tuguese arti­cles indexed each year in the ISI Web of Science.

    Over half of its research units were clas­si­fied as “Excel­lent” or “Very Good” by the lat­est inter­na­tional eval­u­a­tions. In fact, the Uni­ver­sity of Porto has some of the most pro­duc­tive and inter­na­tion­ally renowned Por­tuguese R&D centres.

    In the last years, the Uni­ver­sity has been focus­ing in pro­vid­ing greater eco­nomic value to its sci­en­tific pro­duc­tion and recent part­ner­ships with the Por­tuguese indus­try lead­ers have already resulted in sev­eral inno­va­tions with proven suc­cess in the national and inter­na­tional markets.
