Besides opening its spaces to primary and secondary school students all year round, the University of Porto regularly goes to schools, mainly in the North and Centre North, to participate in information sessions and school fairs to promote its offer in higher education.
The University is also available to visit schools (by logistic assessment for institutions located outside Great Porto) in order to promote its training offer and to provide all the necessary clarifications to our future students.
At the same time, several faculties and other U.Porto bodies promote their own initiatives in schools. This is the case of O Museu Vai à Escola, a programme of the Museum of Natural History and Science (MHNC-UP) which involves teachers and students in a wide selection of practical activities - laboratory, experimental and/or field - aligned with the Essential Learning.
The University's connection to schools is also reflected in the thousands of primary and secondary school students who, every year, visit the University's spaces to get to know and experience U.Porto's teaching and research activities. Events such as the Junior University, the Exhibition of U.Porto or the Open Days of our faculties are an important first visit card for those who aspire to attend our courses.
