UCP campus

The campus of UCP is located in Lisbon. 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. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at UCP. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
