UC campus

The campus of UC is located in Coimbra. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. Students have access to the extensive scientific library of the university. The collection of scientific papers helps them in conducting research. Student life at UC is filled with intercultural activities, as not only local students study here, but also students from abroad. The exchange of knowledge and experience, networking and new acquaintances — all this is an integral part of studenthood.
