The University of Coimbra was recently inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Coimbra offers an outstanding example of an integrated university city with a specific urban typology as well as its own ceremonial and cultural traditions that have been kept alive through the ages. The Portuguese Language and Culture program has three different levels: elementary, intermediate, and advanced. These courses are designed specifically for students learning Portuguese as a second language. Upon arrival, a placement test is given to determine the student's appropriate level placement. The elementary levels include courses in Portuguese language, conversation, and composition as well as a language laboratory. The intermediate levels add courses in Portuguese history, geography, and art to the language and composition and conversation courses. The advanced levels offer a language course, as well as courses in linguistics, Portuguese literature, contemporary Portugal, art history, and geography.

Coimbra is located in Portugal's Costa de Prate, "Silver Coast", which offers a variety of beautiful beaches, charming towns, unspoiled villages, monuments, temples, castles, palaces, and museums. Students will have an opportunity to study and live in a wonderful location with great historical depth. Additionally, two excursions around Portugal are included in the price.
