This mobility program started in the academic year 2009/2010 with the execution of the Cooperation Agreement with the University of Foreign Languages of Dalian. At present, this program involves five Chinese universities, whose students come every year to attend the courses at NOVA FCSH. As in the other exchange programs, the home Universities select the exchange students who will come to study at NOVA FCSH.

Partner Universities

The curriculum of this multidisciplinary program includes Portuguese language studies and courses from other areas of Social Sciences and Humanities. During the past 10 years of collaboration, this exchange program has trained students who concluded – in both their home country and in Portugal – their master degree and Ph.D. on topics related to Portuguese language and culture, developing successful professional careers involving the relationships between China and the Portuguese-speaking world.

In 2015, the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) developed an interdisciplinary and interuniversity mobility program for US students in Portugal, the Study in Portugal Network, of which NOVA FCSH is a partner.

Applications for this program are made directly to SiPN, which must send the list of nominated students to NOVAFCSH within the following deadlines:

Until May 31st – for 1st semester, 2nd semester or annual mobility in the following academic year.
