6 Universities in Portugal with English Language Bachelor Programs

Instituto Superior Técnico – Lisbon, Portugal

In my previous post I listed 8 universities in France with English language programs. This time the number is 6, and the country is Portugal!

Known for its warm Mediterranean climate, beaches, delicious food and wine, Portugal also has a long history of higher education institutions.

The University of Coimbra, founded in 1290, is the oldest university in Portugal as well as one of the oldest in continuous operation in the world. It didn’t make my list (courses taught in Portuguese) but it paved the way for other highly regarded universities throughout Portugal.

The list is a mix of public and private universities so the tuition rates will vary and are higher for international students versus EEA/EU students.

For most public universities, tuition rates for bachelor programs will range between 950 and 1,250 Euros/year. For private institutions, expect to pay between 3,000 and 8,000 Euros/year. Tuition rates fluctuate all the time so don’t be surprised if the tuition costs of some schools fall out side of these ranges.

Things to see and do in Portugal.

Many Master’s/PhD level programs in Portugal are taught in English but the offerings for Bachelor programs are limited. So if you want to attend a university that’s not on this list then you will need at least a B1 level of proficiency in Portuguese.

The Bachelor programs taught in English range from arts & sciences to business and tech. Please contact the schools directly for specific information/requirements for each program.
