As part of the accession to the process of reform recommended by the Bologna model, the IESF has set as one of its strategic policy guidelines, the internationalization of the institution since international mobility is a strong axis and a priority of the school policy. In light of the objectives of the LLP Erasmus, the IESF wants to start actively the implementation and development of the program, encouraging and promoting the mobility of elements of the academic community; establishing multilateral projects, scientific networks, accompanying measures and other actions related to the program.

The IESF's goal is to provide an individualized and high quality teaching / coaching experience to students, as well as to promote the creation of initiatives that convey an improved performance of teachers in research. Another goal is to expand the existing international partnerships, namely with universities in Spain and England, creating a network of institutions and organizations with those and with others from other European countries. In view of the signing of bilateral or multilateral agreements, this meeting of European partners will actively contribute to the effective promotion of lifelong learning in their main scientific areas. In this context, the spread and development of joint training, innovation and research with European institutions assumes a value of paramount importance, which is the reason why the application for Intensive Programmes and Thematic Networks are a priority within the existing framework and potential partners identified.

The application for Multilateral Projects is also a priority in order to be make possible the joint offer of courses of the 2nd cycle of studies.

It is also inextricably linked to our intentions, the promotion of intercultural dialogue, professional and personal achievement, as well as the fostering of active citizenship in light of an ongoing commitment to building international relations solidified through the participation and reception of students, teachers and non-teaching staff, regardless of belonging to economically disadvantaged groups or ethnicities, or be carriers of special educational needs.

The IESF will promote the creation of intensive Portuguese language courses and participate in all activities contributing to the development of language skills; for which we intend to create a Center for Language Abilities, considered an important resource in achieving this goal, generating interactions with an application to Intensive Language Courses Erasmus. It is part of the objectives of the institute to develop teaching / learning innovation through the integration and implementation of cross-cutting programmes, promoting the mobility agents in the spread of the taste for discovery in Europe and that they contribute to the European recognition of Portugal.

Visa Information

All foreign exchange students coming from non-EU countries are required to hold a study visa obtained at the Portuguese Embassy or Consulate of their home country, which is valid for one year.
Students coming from any EU member state are allowed in the country upon the presentation of a valid ID card or passport and their entry in Portugal is not subject to any control. However, the law states that for stays longer than 3 months these students (coming from any EU member state or Schengen country) must request to SEF - Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras (Immigration and Borders Service) a residence permit within 3 months after their arrival. All EU citizens are entitled to this permit, which is valid for one year and can be extended for equal periods. This request must be submitted to the SEF's Regional Delegation in the city of Braga (click here for address and contacts).


Insurance Information

Students from EU and EFTA countries are required to hold a European Health Insurance Card. This document should be requested to the social security service of the student's home country and allows citizens from any European Economic Area (EEA) country to be assisted in case of sickness or personal injury, thus taking advantage of a wider coverage in terms of health care. This card is proof of registration at their country's social security service and allows students to take advantage of health services in Portugal, and will be asked to pay for health care services as much as national citizens under the same circumstances.
