Higher Education admission
The Portuguese higher education is organized in a binary system that integrates university education and polytechnic education and is taught in public and private institutions.
Polytechnic education is guided by a perspective of applied research and development, aimed at understanding and solving concrete problems and aims to provide solid cultural and technical training at a higher level, to develop the capacity for innovation and critical analysis and to impart scientific knowledge of theoretical and practical nature and their applications with a view to the exercise of professional activities.
The Polytechnic of Viseu is the only public higher education institution in the district of Viseu. The training offer of the five Higher Schools of the Polytechnic of Viseu is available in several study cycles: CTeSP, Bachelors, Masters, Post-Graduates and Post-Graduates.
