Even though more and more courses are being taught in English, most classes at the University of Porto are still taught in Portuguese. However, that should not be a cause for concern for students coming from other countries. At U.Porto, there are plenty of opportunities to learn the third most spoken European language in the world!
All you have to do is choose one of the Portuguese as a Foreign Language Courses offered by the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (FLUP). These courses are dedicated to those whose first language is not Portuguese and who wish to learn the language, as well as learn about Portugal and its culture.
After taking an online placement test, we assign you to a level (according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), which will serve as the basis for your learning process.
