It’s my first year, most teachers are arrogant with students and conceited. The University campus is welcoming, with several kittens calming down after exams. My study plan has some useless subjects, but it’s well developed for the first year. It has several residences available, but it is advisable to register in advance to get the ideal room at the ideal price. Private accommodation can be found on the website of the academic federation.View more
The great advantage of the course is undoubtedly its comprehensiveness, it allows us to explore very wide areas in the field of social sciences and gives us training in languages. However, there are several disciplines that fall far short of their potential due to the quality of faculty and/or programs. There is some lack of subjects directly related to International Relations, but on the other hand, the existence of optional subjects allows us to choose subjects from other faculties and explore other areas. In terms of the academic environment, the Faculty of Letters has a great atmosphere and the interaction between the students is very pleasant.View more
The Languages Applied to Business Affairs programme presents a variety of interesting subjects connected with different aspects of a company’s activity, as well as the possibility to study two languages and their contemporary culture (English, Spanish, German, French or Japanese). The negative side of this course is that most of the time the teachers don´t follow the subjects’ objectives and teach the course in a way you didn’t expect. However, the language teachers are native speakers and very strict. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities has a great outdoor space and everyone is very nice.View more
I was enrolled in the Engineering Physics course in Faculdade de Ciências. After a few months, I decided it wasn’t for me, but while I was there I really enjoyed it. The campus is nice and the staff were very helpful, both when I was signing up and when I decided to leave.View more
The degree has 2 years where we learn a lot from journalism, marketing, design, coding, PR, among other related subjects to communication sciences. In the third year, we must choose a branch between journalism, public relations or multimedia. In the final semester, we do an internship with a company or a newspaper to have a sense of a real-life work environment.
That being said, we have a lot of time and opportunities to try, experiment, figure ourselves out and, even if we choose a branch that, at the end of the day, we don’t like, we have learned enough tools to do many other different things. It’s important to try things but, it’s also good to be focused on a goal, on a specific niche that you might want to work after the degree, such as politics, or sports.
As a special needs student, if found a lot of support from the faculty and the university. They really want me to succeed and want to help me do so.
The location of the university is great, the city is geared towards students. In addition, the teachers are willing to help you. The only factor that leaves something to be desired is the price of rentals. Rents are expensive for small spaces.View more
I am an international student here and I really like it, both the university and the course. I study educational sciences and am learning a lot about education with a new approach. If you plan on being a teacher this is not the course for you since it’s not a teacher training one. It kinda touches a bit of pedagogy, psychology and social sciences all in the education field, if that interests you, this is your course.View more
