Open Days allow students in the 9th grade and Grades 10 to 12 of Secondary education to contact Portuguese and foreign universities in the public and private sectors and military education establishments (army, navy and air force) in a face-to-face meeting. Institution representatives set up stands and provide information about the courses they offer.
At a University Open day or Higher Education events, students will also learn more about entry requirements, scholarships and other important information they may need to note to make considered choices. Each college may present their provision in a presentation to provide more in-depth guidance.
These career opportunities are a school-led initiative to help with student’s vocational orientation, both for Secondary education and for Higher education. Up-to-date comprehensive information on higher education institutions allows students the chance to fully understand their options and make an informed decision based on thorough research.
