Summer School


Welcome to FCSH-UNL Summer School. One of Lisbon's major Universities invites you to earn credits studying all kinds of subjects, and to enjoy the Lisbon summer.



The 2013 FCSH Summer School will take place during the months of July, August and the first week of September. During this period, we offer you more than a hundred brief and intensive courses (21 to 25 teaching hours each), in all areas of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The majority of these courses are in Portuguese, but a few of them are in English.

You can choose one or several courses, within the same or different area, according to your interests, courses timetables and availability of places.

A certificate of attendance will be provided (participation in all sessions is required). Evaluation is not mandatory. But, upon request, students can be formally evaluated and earn credits (2 ECTS for each course).

The FCSH-UNL Summer courses do not require application. To register you just have to:
