International students at ISCTE-IUL

Studying at ISCTE-IUL as an international student

Welcome! 

International students who do not hold a Portuguese or another European Union country nationality can apply under the scheme of the "International Student Statute (ISS)", a special admissions contest for international students created in 2014 to regulate admissions to ISCTE-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa to 1st cycle courses (Undergraduate and Integrated Master degrees). 

ISCTE-IUL is  one of the most prestigious universities in the country and provides an exceptional variety of Programmes, covering a wide range of study areas at all levels of higher education. Some of these Programmes are offered in English and some in association with other Universities worldwide, granting a double degree. Furthermore, students have the opportunity to complete part of their studies at one of the 450 university partners globally whilst benefiting from the competitive tuition fees in Portugal.

The diploma provided by ISCTE-IUL is automatically recognised and accepted in all EU member states should students eventually wish to pursue further studies at any university in Europe.

Are you a national of a European Union country?

As a European Union national you enjoy the same status as any Portuguese student, benefiting from the same conditions of admission to all courses offered by ISCTE-IUL.

For 1st cycle courses applications must be made through the National Application for Admissions to Public Higher Education (Concurso Nacional de Acesso ao Ensino Superior Público - CNA), the main access to higher education in Portugal.

The information about the 1st cycle courses and the conditions of entry, can be obtained at the Office for Admissions to Higher Education (GAES/ISCTE-IUL) and at  Admissions website.

Are you a non-EU national and have been legally residing in Portugal for more than 2 years and your parents as well? 

In this case, you are equivalent to a European Union national and you enjoy the same status as any Portuguese student, benefiting from the same conditions of admission to all courses offered by ISCTE-IUL. Please read all the information above.
