    NOT recommended

    I started my Master’s in September and I really regret choosing Nova. The university lacks organization and is just looking for foreign student’s money. They canceled streams and courses during the semester. In addition, Nova changed the master thesis program, forcing students to write in a group. Good marketing but FAKE.
    Nova accepted an excessive number of students. During peak times, you can not even find a place to study on campus. Overall I am really sad that I was tricked by Nova’s Marketing and the overall lack of competencies of the staff is just disappointing, I am still waiting to get the reply to an email I have sent in October…

    Terrible organization

    I started my Master’s in September and I really regret choosing Nova. Firstly, the university accepted an excessive number of students to the Master’s Program in 2020, despite the current pandemic. This makes it hard, even with many people staying home, to find places to study on campus. Additionally, the business analytics courses are unorganized and understaffed, with only two assistants for 150 students, which resulted in exam results taking almost a month to be released. Many times, my e-mails with doubts went unanswered. Furthermore, Professors of these courses are extremely inexperienced in teaching, not knowing how to communicate their knowledge to students.

    Amazing University

    Nova is an Amazing university, very international, people come from everywhere and Teachers are super competent. The campus is very new, right next to Carcavelos Beach, the building is light, full of Windows and you can see the ocean from the classrooms. It is the best university in Portugal according to the statistics and I totally agree.

    Nice environment

    I’m an exchange student from Chile in the NOVA SBE. I chose to come here because I heard it was a great school and it was very accurate to my expectations. I liked the activities to welcome the exchange students, the international department really puts a lot of effort into it. I had very different subjects from a regular core, like International Management, Modern and Contemporary History and Global Business Environment, so it was great to have a broader perspective. In terms of accommodation, the university didn’t offer much support. They do have a leaflet with some options though, and uniplaces was also very useful. I personally wasn’t very integrated in the student initiatives but I heard there are plenty of them at Nova, from finance clubs till tech clubs. Life in Lisbon is chilled and there are many things to do. The night life is great and you have things to do for every person! From pubs to bars to clubs, with every kind of music. The campus is quite big and new, perfect for the studying environment. I recommend future students to participate in all the activities, and enjoy the beach a lot in the summer.

    Dear Flavia, I\'m so glad to hear that you had a great time at Nova. I myself am going to attend the fall semester there. Just wanted to ask which campus you studied at and there you were staying at. Also if you can send me a contact number of someone who studies at Nova that would be great. Thank you.

    Education

    As soon as I entered this university I already felt I was part of a community but I would still change some things like the cleanliness and the fact that all study rooms are usually overcrowded by people from outside the faculty.

    Nova

    Nova is a very big, modern campus next to the beach. It’s located in carcavelos and you can find accommodation there since there is a residence. It is as expected. I heard it was a difficult business school, and there is a lot of work to do weekly, like group works and individual assignments, but you can pass the courses if you make some effort. I feel that professors in NOVA are much onto students, very available for helping (flexible office hours) and very efficient in teaching terms. I had subjects like management accounting entrepreneurship and international management among others, all of them very interesting and engaging. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially because Lisbon is a very erasmus friendly city. There is a place in the city center called Erasmus Corner where all the students meet both on weekdays and on weekends, so it is the perfect location to meet new people and get cheap drinks. After that, we usually go to the clubs near Cais do sodré, which also usually have free entrance for erasmus students. The nightlife is amazing but the city also has very nice events and activities during the day.

    Dear Anonymous student, I\'m so glad to hear that you had a great time at Nova. I myself am going to attend the fall semester there. Just wanted to ask where you were staying at. How far away from campus was your accommodation? And how did you find a place so with which company? Also if you can send me a contact number of someone who studies at Nova that would be great. Thank you.

    Sunny days in carcavelos

    I am an international erasmus student at NOVA for the fall semester and I really like the experience. The courses are beyond my expectations, but they are also way more demanding and difficult (which I think in the end is a good thing). From all the things in Nova, my favorite part was the campus. It is just a very nice place to chill with friends when you’re not in class. I had both theoretical and practical classes, like a business seminar, international management and strategy. The international team at Nova offers support when it comes to accommodation and getting around the city, and it is very easy in general. There are a lot of offers around the city and also near campus, although the first isn’t as affordable. The university has a lot of student activities, for example, the international food fair where all the students from different countries cook food from their home countries and offer it to the other students. The life in Lisbon is good both during and day and night, with lots of special spots that you get to know during the time here. The campus is big and new, but it’s quite empty. I recommend other students to come to Lisbon to experience it and to participate in as many student activities as they can, making the best use of the campus.

    Great experience!

    I came from Finland to do my Erasmus semester at NOVA Sbe, and it is like what I’ve expected. Although I knew the campus was not in the city of Lisbon, I didn’t expect traveling to uni every day would be that time-consuming and tough. Other than that everything was well organized by the university and the international department.

    I liked a lot of things about my experience here like, for example, the weather in Lisbon is amazing (at least until November), and since the campus is at the beach, you can go every day after class for a beer with friends if you want. I also loved the Portuguese food, meeting new fellow students, and the best part was definitely the Erasmus Corner.

    Talking about more educational aspects, I had courses like International Business, Methods for Applied Business Problems and Management Seminar. They all have intensive group work sessions and interesting classes, so I would recommend that other students from around the world come to Portugal for that experience.

    To find accommodation I just used the Uniplaces websites and Facebook groups, they all have many apartments and rooms all over Lisbon, but the university didn’t help me with this matter.

    NOVA has a lot of student club and activities for students, like sports teams and parties. Their Halloween party was awesome. The life in the city is nice. Public transport works well, uber/kapten/bolt is affordable. The only negative things that come to mind are that customer service is rude in many places and things and events often start not on time. Nightlife is active although very techno-focused.

    NOVA SBE campus is quite small since it is only for business students of NOVA. The main building is brand new and nice, right by the beach. My recommendation for future students is to find an apartment close to a train station or the green metro line.
