Program Overview

Program Description:

Lisbon (Lisboa in Portuguese) is the capital of Portugal. It is the biggest city in the country, one of the oldest cities in the world, and one of the least visited of the European capitals. That doesn’t mean it lacks exciting things to do, interesting history or beautiful scenery. It boasts one of the mildest climates in Europe and includes stunning beaches and dramatic natural landscapes. The Tagus (Tejo) is the largest river and its estuary at Lisbon hosts various ships from around the world. It is also one of Europe’s least expensive capital cities and offers exceptional value for food and public transport.

The semester Partnership Program at Lisbon's Universidade Catolica Portuguesa's (UCP) is ideal for students interested in living and studying in one of the oldest, beautiful and most affordable port cities in Europe.
