National Contest for Access and Admission to Higher Education

If you come from an EU country and intend to apply for one of our ‘Licenciatura’ Degrees (1st cycle) – Bsc or Integrated Master Degrees (1st and 2nd cycles), you must do it through the National Contest for Access and Admission to Higher Education, which regulates access to public universities in Portugal.

Special Regimes for Access and Admission to Higher Education

In addition to the National Contest for Access and Admission to Higher Education, designed for students having completed secondary education in Portugal, there are a few other quotas and special rules that apply to incoming students from abroad. The Special Regimes of Access and Admission in Higher Education concern students detaining both the qualifications and a particular personal condition.
