Exploring the future
LISBON UNIVERSITY INSTITUTE
MeSsage OF THE PRESIDENT
ISCTE â€“ Lisbon University Institute (ISCTE-IUL) is a public institution directed towards teaching and research. ISCTE-IUL was established in 1972 and has, today, around 7000 students (over 40% postgraduates), 450 academic staff and 200 administrative and technical staff.
The internationalization of scientific education and research is one of our main strategic pillars. As a consequence of this policy we are now posing as educational partners in Brazil, Cape-Verde, Mozambique, Romania and China. Furthermore, we recently achieved the highest Erasmus ratio amongst Portuguese universities. This last indicator is without doubt related to the elevated number of curricular units taught in English.
ISCTE-IUL continues to be one of the few portuguese university institutions that always fills all its student vacancies and also guarantees high levels of immediate employability to its graduates. ISCTE-IUL scientific and pedagogical expertise covers a wide range of areas: Accounting, Anthropology, Architecture, Computer Sciences, Economics, Finance, History, Law, Management, Psychology, Quantitative Methods and Sociology and Public Policy. ISCTEIUL offers bachelor, master and doctoral programmes in all these areas. At present the Institute offers 15 undergraduate degrees, 9 doctoral programmes, more than 60 master programmes and more than 40 post-graduate/executive master programmes.
For the following four years we have defined three main goals: to increase the number of curricular units taught in English, to enlarge the number of double tutoring programs in collaboration with foreign universities on a Master and PhD level and to develop more research projects with international networks of reference. Therefore I invite you to explore what our institution has to offer with regards to education and investigation and I am confident that you will find an institution open to innovation and international cooperation.
