Program Overview

The western tip of Europe is steeped in ancient history, creating an incredibly rich base to launch your exploration of Portuguese culture and history. In panoramic Lisbon, you'll find six levels of Portuguese language instruction and a wealth of other academic options provide intellectual challenge, while excursions to regional highlights and downtime with peers keep you learning off campus, too.

AACSB Accreditation
Business classes offered in English are available at ISCTE-IUL. Students are only allowed to take up to two classes at either ISCTE-IUL. Other classes are selected from CIEE or Universidade Nova de Lisboa, School of Social Sciences and Humanities (FCSH-UNL) The required Portuguese Language classes, as well as a large selection of area studies elective classes available to students, are CIEE-administered and are not included on the ISCTE-IUL nor FCSH-UNL transcripts.
