Studying medicine in Porto

Fernando Pessoa University, nestled in the picturesque city of Porto, Portugal, is renowned for its exquisite Port wine and iconic bridges. A hub for global students seeking excellence, the university, named after the famed Portuguese poet, offers a rich tapestry of diversity and academic prowess.

From winter semester 2024 on, UFP welcomes a myriad of international students to embark on a 6-year English-taught program in human medicine. Fusing education with enjoyment and support, students often unwind along the coast or meander through the historic riverside, indulging in the charm of traditional cafes. Noteworthy is the enchanting Livraria Lello, a haven for Harry Potter enthusiasts, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s enchantment with Porto.

To join this esteemed institution, applicants must excel in the admission test and a Skype-based motivational interview—MediStart ensures you’re well-prepared. Proficiency in English can be demonstrated through school grades or a TOEFL certificate.

Fernando Pessoa University acknowledges the MediTest-EU as a qualifying alternative to their admission test, comprising written sections on biology, chemistry, and general knowledge (60%), and an interview assessing motivation and skills (40%).
