eBuddy and eBuddy+ Programme

Each incoming student will get the chance to get a eBuddy, a volunteer student from the School of Education who will welcome Erasmus students and help them get integrated. As an incoming student, you will benefit primarly from all the help you get settling in. The first weeks are known to be the hardest for any Erasmus, facing a different country and new language and habits. The eBuddy+ programme also offers you a tandem experience, by offering the opportunity to learn Portuguese Language in informal contexts with your eBuddy.

Portuguese as Foreign Language course (A1 level – 6 ECTS)

Because we want you to learn more than the simple “Olá” (Hello) and “Obrigado” (Thank you), we challenge you to enhance your curriculum by learning the fifth most spoken language in the world, spoken in Portugal, Brazil, East Timor, Angola, Macau and in other countries.

You can take a Portuguese as Foreign Language Course at our School of Education. Enrolment will be done during our InterNetWorking Welcome Week.
