ORIENTATION DAYS – Foreign Students

The Orientation Days is a welcome event aimed at helping the integration of all incoming international students who will attend our School, organized by the Cooperation Unit of the Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto (FEUP) at the start of each academic semester.

The event includes a main welcome session, various information sessions about practical issues, an intercultural get-together in an International Snack, and a cultural, social and academic programme that takes place in several days during which international students have the opportunity of fully getting to know FEUP and the city of Porto.

The Orientation Days is part of the larger softlanding programme of the Cooperation Unit of FEUP. This programme includes also:

  • A Crash Course held at FEUP in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to enroll in an  Intensive Course of Portuguese for Foreigners  running twice a year, in March and October;
  • A FEUP Buddy programme, which aims at preparing, receiving, integrating and supporting international students counting with the help of regular FEUP students as volunteers;
  • A contact point for international students and researchers, which gives support not only during the application process, but also upon arrival. They are welcomed and receive help needed during the stay;
  • Cultural and scientific events, publicized throughout the academic year.
