University of Beira Interior

The University of Beira Interior (UBI) is one of the latest portuguese academies, but where the excellence of portuguese higher education is present.
Founded in 1986, in the city of Covilhã, UBI has recorded throughout history a continuous growth of its academic community, number and diversity of programmes, research units and facilities.
Currently, UBI is composed of five faculties (Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities, Health Sciences and Engineering) that cover the fundamental areas of university activity.
In them work more than a hundred programmes of the three education cycles implemented in the  Bologna Process: 29 Bachelor/Integrated Masters; 46 Masters and 29 PhDs.
The UBI academic year is also filled with a number of non-degree courses that allow professionals to update their knowledge and acquire new skills, either through post-graduate courses, MBA's and other continuing training.
The UBI programmes are guided by the needs of the labor market and the incorporation of the latest scientific and technological research findings.
From the outset, UBI has been committed to international dialogue, aware that contacts with students, teachers, researchers and entities from outside the country are fundamental for the fulfillment of its mission.
In this line, it develops, through the 13 research units, projects with european partners, as well as partnerships with european universities in postgraduate courses.
There are hundreds of students coming from abroad, under the International Student Statute or the various mobility programs, for example Erasmus +.
With this strategy builds a modern and cosmopolitan academic environment, as a result of the approximation of cultures of different countries.
Studying at UBI is the opportunity to live in an environment conducive to scientific and personal enrichment, thanks to the proximity between students and teachers and the high level of quality of life and safety of the city of Covilhã.
Located at the foothills of Serra da Estrela (largest mountain tourism area in Portugal), the city combines scenic beauty with modern community support services, in a privileged geographic location and well served by public transportation and motorways that ensure fast connections throughout the country and Europe, in particular Spain.
