Talking about studies, who can participate in the ERASMUS program?

Contrary to what many students believe, the program is not only open to students studying Letters or Foreign Languages.

You can study abroad through Erasmus even if you are a master's or PhD student, in any higher education institution located in one of the participating countries, i.e. the parts of the countries in Europe.

Lisbon is in the top five Erasmus cities.

The Portuguese capital is one of the most popular destinations among students attending such a program, and why not? The weather is always sunny, the city is ranked as one of the safest capitals in Europe and you can find activities and prices for everyone. Other important cities worth considering are Porto, Aveiro, and Faro, where you can see more of the Portuguese lifestyle.

The University of Coimbra is the oldest in Portugal, and Portuguese students wear traditional uniforms and 'Harry Potter-like cloaks. The University of Évora is one of the most beautiful universities in Europe and luckily for you, it is located in the warm and sunny south.

Why is a Portuguese phone number important?

You need, for example, to open a new internet line, to buy online, for deliveries, for online banking, and for your Via Verde (parking tolls) payments all these require a Portuguese mobile phone number.

Whenever we talk about operators in Portugal, we have to distinguish between 2 different concepts:

  • Fixed network coverage refers to the provision of fixed services (internet, TV, and fixed telephony)

  • Mobile network coverage refers to the provision of mobile services (mobile tariffs and mobile internet)

In Portugal, some operators sell services with fibre, ADSL or satellite networks.
