As a result of U.Porto international reputation, the number of international degree-seeking students has been increasing over the past years. Countries as Brasil, Iran, Cape Verde, Angola and India are currently the most represented ones, in a list of more than 60 different nationalities. Adding to this, FEUP welcomes every year more than 700 exchange students from all around the world, who come for a mobility programme in the framework of cooperation agreements between the University of Porto and foreign higher education institutions.

To the multicultural atmosphere also contribute the foreign researchers and professors, as well as numerous speakers and participants in hundreds of international conferences and seminars which take place all year long.
