Portugal is an attractive country not just for its education system, but for its active lifestyle and accessible living costs. The education system is diverse and degree courses (undergraduate and postgraduate) are offered in many fields of study.
Students who seek an academic degree can enrol at a university while students that aim for a technical specialisation have the chance to earn a degree from polytechnic universities. In order to be able to complete a degree in Portugal, you will need to speak both English and Portuguese. However, the experience of a study course in the most western country of mainland Europe will be rewarding.
Before you apply to a polytechnic or university degree course in Portugal you should check if you need a student visa and learn about the steps you should take to get it. If you’ve decided to study abroad in Portugal and come from an EU or EEA country, good news! You won’t need a Portuguese student visa. The same thing applies for students from Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
For all the other international students, just follow the next steps and prepare to apply for your student visa.
