Student services

The Welcome Week occurs during the first week of classes and it is a very important part of your stay both at CATÓLICA-LISBON and in Portugal. The International Student Affairs department prepares special activities to introduce you to the university and the city.

Our primary goal is to help you get to know our school and other Exchange Students in a short timescale. We believe the activities organized during the welcome week hasten the integration of the exchange students, facilitating contact with the other students and providing all the necessary information about the school and life in Lisbon.
