University of Algarve

Located in the south of Portugal, in a region of Mediterranean climate sought by thousands of tourists, UAlg is headquartered in Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Its privileged location next to the International Airport of Faro and the great number of new air routes connecting to the main Portuguese cities (Porto and Lisbon), Europe and the World, as well as the excellent conditions that, together with the region, have to offer, this academy acquires a central and international status, visible in the streets of the city of Faro, which receives annually about 1,000 international students from more than 50 nationalities. The Algarve also has several diplomatic and consular representations, with the Consulate General of Angola and the Consulate General of Brazil in the city of Faro.

The Algarve is recognized as a cosmopolitan region with high levels of security. Being a medium-sized city with a very welcoming and affordable lifestyle, Faro offers a range of accommodation options ranging from €125 to €200 (room/month). The university canteens offer full meals at a reduced price (€2.35) and the transportation within the city and between university campuses will cost €28.40 (monthly pass). Overall, the cost of living in Faro is lower than the European average.

The University of Algarve has been multiplying and consolidating its training offer in its four campuses, three in the city of Faro and one in Portimão, and offers undergraduate and integrated master's degrees, masters and doctorates, which are distributed in its major areas of training: Arts, Communication and Heritage; Social and Education Sciences; Health Sciences and Technologies; Earth, Sea and Environment Sciences; Economics, Management and Tourism; Engineering and Technologies.

Scientific research has been a fundamental factor for the development of the University, placing it in a trajectory of national and international affirmation.
