ULisboa in the top of the Erasmus mobility >>
In the academic year 2012/2013, the University of Lisbon (ULisboa), which ISEG belongs, was the sixth most sought by the European students. The actual ULisboa is composed by the previous Technical University of Lisbon (UTL) and University of Lisbon (UL), where 1468 Erasmus students were welcomed. Eduardo Pereira, vice-rector of ULisboa, confirms that “the attractiveness of the University has been growing from year to year. Are no longer just students from countries of southern Europe who come to us, but also from Germany, Poland and the Nordic countries.”, admitting that “students recognize us as a good place to learn.” Other Portuguese Universities occupy the top choices of Erasmus students, in particular the University of Porto, the University of Coimbra and New University of Lisbon. >>
