International applicants are individuals who…

  • do not have Portuguese nationality;

  • are not nationals of any other Member State of the European Union;

  • have not applied for admission through special access and admission schemes regulated and organised by the Portuguese Government’s Directorate General for Higher Education;

  • are not enrolled at the UAlg under a programme of international mobility, student exchange agreements, or a study cycle in association with one or more foreign higher education institutions;

  • are nationals of a country outside the European Union, legally residing in Portugal uninterruptedly for a period of less than two years by August 31 of the year in which they wish to be admitted at the UAlg, as well as their children legally residing with them;

  • are simultaneously citizens of a Member State of the European Union in which they do not have habitual residence and nationals of another foreign country to whom the status can be awarded.

NOTE: The period of the residence permit for study purposes does not enter the calculation of the period of residence in Portugal.
