Frequently asked questions about higher education in Portugal

When should I start my application?

In Portugal the school year begins in September and the selection processes for international students begin, in general, between February and April.

So, the sooner you prepare the documentation, is better. Thus, you will have all the necessary documents to submit your application when the moment comes.

What documents are required for the application?

For applications, it is usually required: proof of the level of education/diploma; proof of vaccination and passport. At this moment, Universities do not require a Visa or a residence permit. From year to year it may have some changes, but usually this is the necessary documentation.

What is the language of the documents that should be presented?

It it important to mention that the documents to be used must be in English or Portuguese. If they are not, they will need to be translated.

Can I choose any university?

We work with the Porto, Braga, Coimbra and Lisbon Universities. You will choose which University you would like to study!

Can I apply for more than one university?

Keep in mind that you are allowed to apply to more than one university, increasing the chance to be approved by one.

What is the fee of the legal assistance?

The fee for our legal assistance to guide you and submit your application at the University and, in case of approval, do the register, is 1.440€ (VAT included) per process/per application.

How will I get my residence visa?

 If you need our legal assistance for residences/visa processes (for you and your family), we are also available. We can support you throughout the process, from the NIF (tax identification number), bank account, residence visa, rental agreements, notary services. It will be a pleasure to be able to help. Count on us! We can send you a business proposal for that.

My wife and I made a decision to start our immigration process in October of 2023. Vivian was recommended to us around that same time.We both appreciate everything Vivian has helped us with through the process. We are now waiting on our visa. Vivian has proved very knowledgeable and without her help, we would have struggled. Her communication has always been excellent and never missed a meeting. We communicated in English with no problems. Her dedication and experience are highly rated by us.
Dr Vivian was incredibly kind to deal with. She is very confident and knows her job very well, preparing my emigration to Portugal. Her vast legal knowledge leaves me safe and confident in future decisions regarding the purchase or rental of property, avoiding the traps and tricks so common in this segment.
