Overview

The University of Porto (U.Porto) is a public university in Porto, the second largest city in Portugal. It was established on March 22, 1911 and has been in existence for over 100 years, making it one of the oldest universities in the country. U.Porto takes pride in being a comprehensive university that offers courses in all study areas. With this, the university’s mission is to generate valuable knowledge in science, culture, and the arts. It also aims to provide an education steeped in research and to contribute to the progress in the communities where they are involved.

U.Porto offers more than 400 undergraduate and graduate degrees. They have 34 bachelor’s degrees, 145 master’s degrees, 18 integrated master’s degrees, and 95 doctoral degrees. They also offer more than 150 lifelong courses. Most of these lifelong courses are recognized under the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) so credits earned can be transferred to other programs within the university. U.Porto is organized into 14 faculties and one business school.

When the university first opened in 1911, there were only two schools, the School of Science and the School of Medicine. In the 1900s, the Faculties of Theology, Arts, and Pharmacy were added. From 1926 to 1974, expansion of the university came to a halt with the establishment of an authoritarian regime. But with the triumph of the democractic revolution in 1974, the university resumed adding new schools. In 1988, it also offered postgraduate studies through the Porto Business School.

Over the years, U.Porto has produced distinguished alumni including architect Álvaro Siza Vieira; billionaire José Manuel Ferreira, founder of online luxury fashion retail platform Farfetch; and Rui Fernando da Silva Rio, president of the Social Democratic Party and the former mayor of Porto.

The University of Porto is considered one of the best universities in Portugal. Globally, it has figured in the top 300 to 400 universities in the world based on rankings by QS, THE, and Shanghai Ranking. It has also received top 100 rankings for its offerings in veterinary science,
chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, and food science and technology. With these accomplishments, the university is closer to its goals of being one of the top 100 universities globally in 2020.

The university has been involved in a number of innovative research projects, such as the use of ultra-intense laser pulses for cancer treatment and contactless outdoor temperature screening stations. They have also partnered with the Macao Polytechnic Institute to publish the first international academic journal in the Portuguese language in Asia.
