Thousands of foreign students study in Portugal every year under the European Unions Erasmus student exchange program.

The credentials and diplomas you earn at a Portuguese university are recognized throughout the European Union, which means that you can go on to study at any other university in Europe.

6. The Way to Learn Portuguese
