The western tip of Europe is steeped in ancient history, creating an incredibly rich base to launch your exploration of Portuguese culture and history. In panoramic Lisbon, you’ll find six levels of Portuguese language instruction and a wealth of other academic options provide intellectual challenge, while excursions to regional highlights and downtime with peers keep you learning off campus, too.  

An intensive language program sets students of all language levels up for success, whether they take courses in English, Portuguese, or both. Students pursue their studies in an academically challenging environment at Universidade Nova de Lisboa, supplemented with cultural activities, excursions, and more.
