We welcome the new international students to University Fernando Pessoa!

In order to ease your adaptation to the University and your stay in Porto, we prepared some activities that we hope you enjoy.

We strongly encourage international students to attend the program, because it is a great opportunity to get to know the University, to make friends and to have a good time.
