 Mobility Programmes


The University of Minho recognises internationalisation as a key element to promote the quality of its educational projects. The international mobility is one of the most successful mechanisms in preparing students for work and life in a globalised world, and also in the acquisition or consolidation of transversal skills, including: knowledge of foreign languages, independence, initiative, flexibility, intercultural understanding and sensibility, and international awareness.

In this context, the University of Minho has created diverse frameworks of international mobility so that its students can benefit from unique opportunities and to enhance, in a complementary form, the internationalisation at the campi by offering an international and multicultural dimension to non-mobile students, through contact with foreign students and teaching staff who choose UMinho as their host institution.
 
UMinho is proud of being part of a deep transformation in the lives of the students that invest in an international mobility experience by coming to the University of Minho (IN) or departing from UMinho to a foreign institution (O​UT).
 
The mobility of teaching and non-teaching staff and its international dimension are also key elements of the policy for internationalisation of the University of Minho and its human resource development strategy.​
