Employability

Committed to the success of its students, Universidade de Lisboa (ULisboa) takes on the duty of gathering and disclosing information on employment and the professional career of its graduates, as an indicator of the level of adjustment between educational supply and the job market demand.

Share Employability

By monitoring the employability of its graduates through an online survey (1st and 2nd cycles), after at least 12 months of contact with the job market, ULisboa wants to identify the waiting periods, the ratios and profiles of employment, the nature of these labor contracts, as well as other parameters associated with insertion.
In the future, this monitoring system will reach graduates from these cycles of study after about 6 and 10 years of contact with the job market and it will also include graduates from the 3rd cycle of studies.
Some ULisboa Schools provide their students with assistance to professional insertion, enabling further proximity and personalized tracking of their graduates’ careers.
ULisboa also has a Job Portal available, meant for employers and graduates, available at emprego.ulisboa.pt.
