Language Requirements

Lectures are given mainly in Portuguese and if you plan to attend regular courses you should have some knowledge of both written and spoken Portuguese. However, language skills are not an entrance requirement. Students wishing to attend courses in Portuguese must go to the website here and then choose the degree/s and courses they want.

In some courses, foreign students will be allowed to do their reports and written examinations or essays in English or another foreign language but this must be agreed upon by teachers on a case-by-case basis. Most professors will also provide tutorials to help students organize their study programme.

ISCTE-IUL provides a wide offer of English-taught single courses for international students in all Schools.

To follow these classes students should have a minimum level of English language (called ‘B2 level’ - according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR)).

All information regarding courses and student's registration can be found at the Academic Information web page here.
