An International Student is any student who:
Is from Non-EU Countries
International students from countries outside the European Union have the opportunity to enroll in an undergraduate or integrated master's degree under a specific access system – the International Student Statute.
You can benefit from this status if you meet the following conditions:
You are NOT a national of a European Union country;
Do NOT reside in Portugal for more than 2 years;
NOT related to Portuguese or nationals of a member state of the European Union;
If it is:
Student from EU Countries
National of a Member State of the European Union;
Family of Portuguese or nationals of a Member State of the European Union, regardless of of your nationality;
If you are not a national of a Member State of the European Union and not covered by the previous paragraph, you have resided legally in Portugal for more than two years, uninterruptedly, on January 1st of the year in which you intend to enter higher education, as well as the children legally residing with them;
I enjoy a status identical to that of any Portuguese student, benefiting from the same conditions in accessing all courses at Lusófona Teaching Institutions.
