Welcome to NOVA FCSH

NOVA University of Lisbon – School of Social Sciences and Humanities  (NOVA FCSH) is located at the heart of Lisbon, in two campi: Avenida de Berna and Campolide. In the first campus, you can attend bachelor and master’s degrees; in the second, Phds and research units.  Both are close to subway, gardens, services and cultural infrastructures, such as Culturgest and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

I don´t speak Portuguese

Here you can find all optional courses units that are lectured in English, both in Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees. You can also take Portuguese as a Foreign Language classes.


Lisbon offers to international students a true European experience: art galleries, cafes, museums, libraries, multiculturalism and an unique architecture face. It is Europe’s second-oldest capital city, just after Athens, and it is here that most of the Portuguese students choose to study for their university degree.
