The ERAMUS+ program offers mobility opportunities for studies (SMS) and internships (SMP). These opportunities depend on the existence of a prior agreement between the Higher Education Institution of origin and the Universidade Lusófona. Therefore, if you would like to study at Universidade Lusófona as a mobility student, you should first contact the International Office at your home university to see what courses are available. If there is a valid bilateral cooperation agreement between your university and the University of Lusófona, your institution may nominate you to spend a period of study with us.

The admission procedure for mobility students coming to Universidade Lusófona (P LISBOA52) includes two mandatory phases:
