New University of Lisbon
The New University of Lisbon, also known as Nova or UNL for short, was established in 1973 and is the youngest of the three public universities of Lisbon, in Portugal. It was created as part of a programme of expansion and diversification in higher education in Portugal and was a response to ever an increasing demand for higher education in the city and surrounding areas of Lisbon.
The exchange agreement between King's and The New University of Lisbon allows for up to 1.5 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 1 student going for a full academic year and 1 student going for a single semester OR 3 students for a single semester.
Important: Final decision on your application rests entirely with the host institution and students outside of the department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies will need to obtain a 60 percent in their end of year exams in order to be able to go on the exchange programme.
Estimated living costs
Please see here for current estimated living costs, but actual expenses may vary depending on student lifestyle. The cost of travel to and from the country is not included in these estimates.
A reminder that King's students on exchange are not required to pay tuition fees to the host university, but you may incur administrative and/or orientation fees at the host. There may also be mandatory insurance costs, and transcripts may incur a fee.
Please also note that, if required, student visas often require applicants to supply evidence of financial support throughout the duration of the study abroad programme. Sometimes this will mean showing financial evidence for a specific amount, so please pay attention to the advice on this from the host institution.
