Why study in Portugal?

One of the oldest nations in Europe, Portugal attracts more than 20 million tourists a year with its rich culture and long coastlines. Portugal’s capital Lisbon was founded in 1200 BCE and has since become known for its food, nightlife, Fado music and colorful buildings. The city’s hilly streets with the signature bright yellow trams invite for a stroll through the old town. Visit Lisbon’s many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and stop by a café or a bar to enjoy a glass of the world-renowned Portuguese wine.

When the urban buzz of the capital becomes too much for you, Portugal also offers small but charming villages hidden along the Atlantic coast. There, a laid-back atmosphere and welcoming inhabitants give an opportunity to relax from the busy life in the city. Moreover, Portugal’s coast is perfect for surfers and anyone interested in trying to start surfing.
