Study Abroad Portugal.
education in Portugal is divided into two subsystems: university education
and non-university higher education (polytechnical education), and it is
provided in autonomous public universities, private universities, polytechnic
institutions and private higher education institutions of other types. In
addition, there is a university institution which offers courses in Management,
Anthropology, Sociology, History, Economics and Psychology. The Portuguese
Catholic University was instituted by decree of the Holy See and is recognized
by the State of Portugal. Private higher education institutions cannot operate
if they are not recognized by the Ministry of Education. Access is regulated
by the same procedures as those for state higher education institutions.
The two systems of higher education (university and polytechnic) are linked
and it is possible to transfer from one to the other. It is also possible
to transfer from a public institution to a private one and vice-versa.
