If you are a student at NOVA FCSH looking for an experience abroad to enrich your academic path, explore below the available programs. Also, don´t forget the see the protocols that NOVA has with universities around the world.
Erasmus+ Outgoing Programs
NOVA FCSH is party to more than 350 Erasmus+ bilateral agreements, executed with universities from all over Europe in the different areas of Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities and for the three cycles – Bachelor, Masters, and Doctorate.
Students can enroll in the Programme from the second year of their degree onward (having the educational components of 60 ECTS of their bachelor’s degree already taken). Every academic year, a call for study exchange vacancies and Erasmus+ grants is opened – the NOVA FCSH students, whose application for an exchange has been accepted, shall start their study abroad period during the following academic year.
By applying for an Erasmus+ study abroad period, a student automatically applies for an Erasmus+ grant. The grant awarding shall depend on the overall ranking of the application – in case the number of the study exchange positions granted to NOVA is lower than all the total number of applications received. Study exchange periods are attributed first to Ph.D. students, then to Master and finally to Bachelor students

Therefore, this program is focused on investing in their education within the european labor market context, providing the support and guidance required to their professional placement and development of skills in an international background, encouraging multilingualism and multiculturalism and favoring personal/social skills, as well as management and social abilities, which allow for a full learning process throughout life with an elevated level of autonomy in understanding languages and foreign cultures.

Other outgoing programs
The Almeida Garrett Program is a national mobility program for public university students that involves all the universities represented in the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. This program allows undergraduate and graduate students (1st and 2nd cycle) to spend a semester in a Portuguese public university different from their home institution and pay the tuition fees only to their home university. This program does not include mobility grants. The acceptance and application procedures are the same as for any student exchange program.
You can apply for the program every academic year and you will be able to do so for next year. Additional information here (link to Intranet).
NOVA University of Lisbon has agreements with Higher Education Institutions all over the world. Through General Framework Agreements and specific addenda for mobility programs, NOVA FCSH students can spend an exchange period in a partner institution.
The terms and conditions governing each mobility program are set out in the Addendum executed by the corresponding partner institution. Students can benefit from some grants for academic exchange periods in partner institutions (i.e. institutions having a bilateral protocol executed with NOVA FCSH), in particular the Ibero-American Grants – Santander Universities, for both Undergraduate and Graduate Students. The details of these grants are advertised through the digital channels of NOVA FCSH when the Santander Bank opens the calls.
The Mobility program of the Association of Portuguese Language Universities (AULP) is the first academic mobility program that promotes exclusively student exchanges between institutions of Portuguese-speaking countries and Macao (MSAR, China). Each University of the AULP can host two students for each semester. Through the execution of a study agreement, the student does not need to pay tuition fees and the credits for the completed courses are acknowledged by the home institution.
Students can apply for this program directly through the AULP. After being notified of the results of the application, the NOVA FCSH selected candidates shall contact the NEIMA (International Students & Exchange Office) for the exchange procedures and practicalities.
