The University of Lisbon has, currently, an estimated number of 20,000 students and a teaching staff of 1,800 highly qualified teachers, many of whom are eminent cultural and scientific Portuguese personalities.
The University of Lisbon comprises the following organic units: Rectorate, the Faculty of Letters, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Pharmacy, the Faculty of Psychology and Education, the Faculty of Dental Medicine, the Faculty of Fine Arts, the Social Sciences Institute and the Social Services.
The exchange agreement between King's and The University of Lisbon allows for up to 4 Full Year Equivalent (FYE) places for each institution. This equates to 4 student going for a full academic year OR 8 students for a single semester OR a mix of the two.
Eligibility for King's students
Important: Final decision on students' study abroad application to their host institution rests entirely with that host institution. Students must also meet their departments’ academic requirements to obtain final departmental approval to study abroad. It is usually at least a 60% average prior to departure, however this can vary amongst departments. Students should double check with their Study Abroad Tutor if they are unsure of their academic requirements.
King’s students that wish to study abroad at this institution should check the ‘Undergraduate options by department’ page to see if this institution is indeed an option for them.
Estimated living costs
Please research the estimated living costs for this country. 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.
