Study at FEP - Students Organisations

As a result of the initiative of several and very active student organisations, studying at FEP provides the opportunity to integrate in a unique academic environment, in one of the largest and most prestigious Portuguese universities.

Student Organizations

FEP's student organisations promote different types of activities, namely cultural, recreational and sports activities, as well as student support, mediation between students, companies and Alumni and social responsibility, among others.

The student is encouraged to participate in these extracurricular activities in such a way that he/she can see it formally recognised in his/her career at FEP, culminating in a PRO-SKILLS certificate.
