Academic Information

The academic year is divided into two semesters. A student may attend courses chosen from 2, 3 or 4 different academic departments (Economics, Management, Mathematics and Social Sciences).
Foreign students take the same type of examination as Portuguese students, who are continuously assessed in a number of different ways. These may include formal examinations at the end of each semester, participation and class attendance, mid-terms, group projects and the presentation of case studies or essays. You will also be asked to work with other students to illustrate your ability to work as part of a team and be actively involved, encouraged to ask questions and join in discussions and debate with your teachers.
In some courses, foreign students will be allowed to do their reports and written examinations in English or another foreign language but this must be agreed upon by teachers on a case-by-case basis. A final mark is given at the end of each exam period. Grades are given on a scale with a maximum score of 20 and the minimum passing grade is 10. Students who fail in the normal exam (1st period of exams) have a second opportunity in a final exam (2nd period of exams). Please see the  academic calendar of the exams (menu on the right), for the undergraduate and master courses.
On successful completion of studies, students are automatically issued with an official transcript of records.
