Description

Located in Portugal’s second largest city, the origins of the University of Porto (UP) date back to the 18th century, when it provided education in science, arts and humanities, before gaining official university status in 1911.

UP today comprises 14 faculties, 15 schools, including a business school, and 51 scientific research institutions spread across three campuses. It offers around 600 programmes, from degrees to professional training courses.

It provides a wide and diverse academic portfolio and adopts ‘hands on’ teaching methods by way of equipping graduates with practical skills needed in the job market. Consequently, the university boasts high graduate employment rates for its graduates.

UP has the highest student population of any of Portugal’s universities, with a cohort of approximately 31,000, of which around 13% are international students representing 100 nationalities. The university’s collaborations with overseas universities have recently expanded and include projects with universities in Brazil and several African countries.

The university has some curious facilities and a very complete social life. The teachers pose the subjects with a complete learning model that helps the student's personal and professional improvement. The approach of the classrooms and the motivation that is generated makes the training different from the rest.

This University provides us with great opportunities to develop yourself through several extracurricular activities; the curriculum depends on the Faculty but most of Universities try to stay relevant and current in the subjects taught, even though some Faculties still have outdated learning methods (not PBL, but lectures). It also promotes intercultural inclusion and learning and healthy lifestyles. I also like the fact that it interacts in social media with students and promotes campaigns on several topics. I believe it can improve by aiming for innovation and getting even more involved with the community.

The first thing that comes to mind when you first see FEUP is to think of a big city! Its large departments spread across the college grounds are reminiscent of a bustling city with students in every corner. It has very nice places where you can study quietly, or even gardens where you can relax at intervals between classes. Normally when one does not like to study, everything is demotivating, but in the case of FEUP, students are motivated to be the best and make the world a better place. A city of learning.

FEUP is usually a good faculty but for this semester with COVID, it was really bad. While all the other universities in the country had already closed, UP was decided to remain open. Eventually, it closed but now, when we should be having as little contact as possible, all the exams are in person and not online as they should. There is little control inside the faculty and so lots of people don't wear masks and it's impossible to maintain physical distance, as there are no guidelines whatsoever.

Obviously I recommend this university, it's arguably the best in the country, atleast in my field. Campus is good, there's a good environment to spend time on. There's also a variety of stuff to do "off-campus", and there's a lot of exchange students, from different cultures. Everything is great. Except the fact that most of the teachers are old, therefore, the teaching methods tend to be outdated. That and the housing is a little expensive, but that's to be expected from a big city.

It's great and I totally recommend it! However, I believe it needs some innovation in several areas. I study Economics and the building of the faculty really needed an intervention and I'm glad it's being done. We also have renowned teachers, but almost all of them are old and the programmes should be updated.
