Mobility Programmes

ULisboa sets internationalization as one of its main guidelines, bringing the entire academic community and its international partners together in educational and research projects.

Every year, a large number of in-coming international students, from several countries, carry out mobility programs at ULisboa, for studying or research.

ULisboa students have countless international mobility programs available to them and these are open to international students not only from Europe, but from the rest of the World. A good example is the Erasmus+ Program and the many Cooperation Agreements that ULisboa has established with higher education institutions from all over the World.
Students attending foreign higher education institutions and wishing to apply at ULisboa, for one semester or a full academic year, thus taking advantage of an unique international experience, should contact the International Relations Office at their home school to check if there is any kind of partnership with ULisboa or some other available mobility program and confirm how they can apply for a mobility experience at ULisboa.
