Student Cost of Living

A national average budget study was published recently stating that international students living in Portugal only need between 550 – 800 EUR per month. This does include rent, groceries, transportation fare, and excess necessities.

Portugal is revered as one of the most afford and beautiful places in Europe.

International students can also receive part-time jobs while enrolled at one of the universities located in the country.

Cost of Tuition

Maybe the best thing about Portugal is their straight across tuition cost. For international students, tuition will never go over 7000 EUR for a single academic year. This is the highest amount that will be paid in a single year by an international student.

Domestic students will pay less and may even receive complete free tuition coverage.

International students can receive fully funded scholarships through exchange programs or through medical and language programs that are provided by one of the universities mentioned above.

Languages Spoken in Portugal

What is the main language in Portugal? Portuguese is the national and number one language in the country. While Portugal is multi-cultural and has many languages spoken by different individuals, Portuguese will need to be learned eventually. The longer a student stays and studies in the country, they will be expected to pick up a basic understanding of the language.

Other languages spoken in the country are English, French, Spanish, and Calo. This is a small compiled list of languages that are spoken, however, there are many more.
