University of Porto

History

The University of Porto was formally created on 22 March 1911, as a result of the newly implanted republican system. However, it stems, since the 18th century, from many combined experiences of training in Science, Arts and Medicine, which would lead to the future University.

Education

By having the most complete offer in learning programmes available for Higher Education in Portugal, the U.Porto’s 15 schools provide unique conditions to pursue an outstanding academic record which will be valued in the job market. All of this takes place in a multicultural learning environment committed to the highest standards of excellence and quality.

The courses at the U.Porto are remarkably diverse: over 600 training programmes (graduate, postgraduate and lifelong) guarantee solutions for all types of students starting from 1st cycle undergraduates up to Masters degree and Doctoral degree students.

Research

Just like the world's best universities, the University of Porto combines teaching with top scientific research. Indeed, it is the umbilical relationship between these two dimensions – between learning and creating knowledge – that justifies the classification of the University of Porto as a Research University.

Career

Attending a course at the University of Porto grants the student a privileged position in the job market. Two of the main reasons which contribute to this privileged position are the excellence of the training, highly recognised in both national and international job markets, and the extended services to support professional integration that is provided by the University.

Covering all fields of knowledge taught in the institution, the 30 libraries of the University of Porto occupy an area of over 20,000 m2 and include 800,000 titles. 

Medical services

Porto’ s two largest hospitals are Hospital Geral de S. João and Hospital Geral de Santo António. Both have 24-hour A&E services. There are also numerous public and private clinics and health services available in the city, some of which are also open 24 hours.

Campus life

The U.Porto is currently expanding and modernising its infrastructures with a view to increasing the quality and quantity of equipment in general. This renewal process includes schools, research centres, libraries, auditoriums, museums, halls of residence, sports venues and social venues, as well as other equipment that respond to the specific demands of the academic community.

Sports facilities

The U.Porto grounds include two stadiums, a recent pavilion and other dully equipped infrastructures for the practice of multiple sports. Aside the multiple equipment available at the Boa Hora Sports Centre (Polo I), at the Faculty of Sport and at the recently inaugurated Luís Falcão Pavillion (Polo II), the U.Porto has also, since 2013, been using the historical University Stadium of Porto. The practice of sports is thus possible in all three sites of the University.

Student clubs

The U.Porto grounds include other structures and organisms, either directly or indirectly linked to University life, which are connected to teaching, research, theatre, music and business incubation. Please see below for some examples.

Since 2015, WU has held triple accreditation by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA, the 3 most prestigious accreditation agencies for business and economics universities.

Double-edged Sword
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

University of Porto collects some of the most brilliant minds of the philosphy scene in Portugal. However, not all of these minds can be good tutors - some of them fail in the most important task for a professor: to teach.
