Most teachers are very approachable, always available to help you, and very flexible. The installations are nice and comfortable.
My only complaint is with The University board which is not very good at defending the student’s best interests. Every time they have decided on something it feels like the student’s voices are not heard.
I find that the lack of consistency in the grades affects our Performance as Students and our confidence to work outside of the box, leading to boring and poor end results. I’m in my final year of my architecture master’s degree AND I always felt that I could have done better. Besides myself, I blame the lack of infrastructures and resources provided and self absorbed teachers( in some cases)View more
The good professors are only from Mathematics, we only have 1 or 2 good ones in our aerospace department. However, we have good rooms, study and classroom rooms, associations etc. I can say that the labs are not the best, we can not do many things because of the lack of material and teacher’s support.View more
The University of Colvilhã offers, apart from an excellent educational program, a perfect student life. It is located in a small town in Portugal that fits the pocket of young people and life there is very cheap, with a great leisure offer. In addition, the university has a wide international variety of students. In educational aspects, in the case of careers like mine that are very practical, this university has very complete programs in which both theory and practice are offered in equal parts. The only downside I would say about this university is that the materials and resources are a bit outdated and you should invest in renovating them. But otherwise, it is a great university.View more
UBI is a community of students, professors and staff. It’s located in a university town, which makes it easier for students to navigate and balance their social and academic life. There is plenty of opportunity for growth, specially being that most students move away from their parents and get to meet people from different backgrounds.View more
Being a student at UBI is quite a good experience.
The facilities for the Communication Course are really good. Staff and Professors are always available after class for a tutorial time and that’s something really interesting. The course count’s with a good amount of theoretical studies and also some practical activities that can really add up to your experience. Often we have visitors Professors coming from different European and even American Universities, so that brings some freshness for the studies.
The city doesn’t offer much to do. It’s a small city in the countryside of Portugal, so that’s a bit of a payoff one has to have in mind. This means that whenever you need to go to some other country you have to spend around 3 to 5h in train or bus to get either to Porto or Lisbon. The good side of it is that Covilhã is quite a cheap city compared to the two big centres. It’s relatively easy to find accommodation and you certainly will not have to worry about having a car or using public transportation for daily locomotion.View more
The amount of courses to choose from is massive. All the several campus are near each other. And the privilege to be studying at Serra da Estrela is amazing, the views, the snow and the gastronomic culture are amazing!View more
Its history dates back to the days when there was, in fact, little to no recorded history. Known at the time as Cava Juliana, The city of Covilhã is located in a strategic zone. Home to many shepherds throughout the ages, the construction of castles for military potential attracted much wealth in the form of Industry, Royalty and Priesthood. Once called the “Portuguese Manchester”, this city fostered a huge boom in Textile fabrication.
With the downfall of the once proud Industry from the pressure of modern times, and indeed from the very remains of those once Royal Institutions, the University of Beira Interior would rise to give new life to the city – The Entrepreneurial spirit of the city was thus only transformed, adapted to the new age of knowledge economies and is ever present throughout the city in many art forms.
Student Life: The new rector has made a huge push for awarding motivated students with all the tools they need for success – From extended library access hours (they never close during the exams period!), to cheap cantina meals, to Rector’s list acknowledgements (a huge honor!) and assistance to student projects, there’s much in the way of encouragements.
Night Life: This cozy town is perfect for partying. Almost a village in some sense, the environment is very safe and informal. People easily see one another many times over the course of their stay and it’s easy to build friendships here precisely because you see the same familiar faces so often.
Sleep: -Very- cheap rents (120€ for a bedroom, 250€ for a T0 apartment in public domain) or 100€ (utilities included, University’s facilities). Some facilities are older, but Erasmus students are always placed in very good apartments in the University.
Professors: Very open to elucidate on any students doubts, very informal, very helpful and capable teachers.
Scenery: Very beautiful town, lots of nature and rustic architecture! Very traditional!
Social Services: Very helpful, they work fast.
The people: Very friendly and helpful!View more
