Ukrainian students who fled the war will have access to special status to study in Portuguese higher education. The government’s goal with this measure is to facilitate and promote education among these people who are victims of a humanitarian crisis.
Besides this support, the government has created other measures to speed up the integration of Ukrainians in the Portuguese education system, by granting equivalences of qualifications, but through a simpler procedure than usual.
Young Ukrainians have access to different educational institutions, where the training offer is taught in English, and applications must be submitted directly to the colleges.
Another measure is the progressive integration into the Portuguese curriculum and reinforcement in the learning of the Portuguese language, and they have access to intensive courses in Portuguese as a non-native language.
Teachers and researchers who were working in Ukraine will also be able to continue their work in Portugal.
