This exam is based on criteria related to specific knowledge and skills directly relevant for enrolment and advancement in the programme which the applicant wishes to attend.

In the curricular assessment, the track record, experience, professional training and the academic qualifications of the candidate are evaluated, and their relevance for the scientific field of the programme which the candidate wishes to attend is also valued;
The interview is designed to assess the candidate’s track record and the reasons given for the choice of the programme.

I am having some trouble applying for a review of grade. What is happening?

The applications for a review of grade are done in two phases: first, the student requests a copy of the exam through the portal and then, the student submits the application for a review of grade.
The student must submit the application for a review of grade within three business days, provided the student has requested a copy of the exam in the first two days.
For example, the grade of a curriculum unit is published on Monday. The student can request a copy of the exam on Tuesday and Wednesday. If the student requests the copy on Tuesday, he/she is provided the copy on Wednesday, which allows the student to submit the application for a review of grade on Wednesday or Thursday. If the student requests the copy of the exam on Wednesday, he/she shall have the copy on Thursday and the student must submit the application for a review of grade within the day.

Is it possible that the answer to a review of grade is given during the weekend?

Yes. Grade reviews are decided by the Professors and made available at the Online Resources.

How long in advance are oral tests scheduled?

Oral tests are scheduled at least two days in advance, i.e., there must be at least one day between scheduling the exam and taking it.

Can I change the date of an oral exam that has already been scheduled?

Oral exams are scheduled by the Academic Division according to the instructions given by the groups of Professors who inform the Academic Division of the day, time and jury. Oral exams are scheduled at least two days in advance and the schedule of the oral exams cannot be changed, except on justified grounds pursuant to article 7 of the applicable Regulation on Evaluation.

Is it necessary to withdraw from the oral exam in order to enrol in the resit exam?

Students must be present in all written and oral exams. If students are absent without justification, they cannot enrol in the resit examination period and consequently, they will fail the curriculum unit. If the student withdraws, he/she must state that he withdraws from the exam so that the Professor can include that information in the score sheet and so that the student can enrol in the resit examination period.

Can oral exams be scheduled two days in a row?

Oral exams may be scheduled for the same day or on consecutive days.

When can I know the grades of the oral exams?

The score of the oral exam is included in the score sheet and is read publicly at the end of the oral session, immediately after the decisions have been taken, followed by the delivery of the score sheet to the Academic Division and its announcement.

I have an oral exam to improve my grade (Curriculum Unit completed in the current semester) or a scheduled exam to improve my grade (Curriculum Unit completed in the previous academic year). Can I withdraw from the exam and take it the following year?

You can withdraw from the exam, but you cannot take it the following year. The student can only take one exam to improve his/her grade, and for that purpose, we take into account the unjustified absence or withdrawal during the exam.

How can I cancel an oral exam to improve my grade when it has not even been scheduled yet?

You can apply for the cancellation of the registration in the oral exam to improve your grade, through the Online Resources. If the oral exam to improve the grade has already been scheduled (with an assigned date) it is not possible to reschedule or cancel. If the oral exam to improve the grade of the curriculum unit is cancelled, you can enrol in the ordinary examination period the following year. In that case, the student can only take a total of 4 grade improvement examinations per semester.

How many days do I have to enrol in the resit examination period?

You can enrol in the resit examination period within five business days after having been excluded from the Curriculum Unit of the ordinary period.

Can I register for the resit examination period having been absent without justification from the written exam in the ordinary period?

No.

Yesterday I paid an application for the review of my grade and the online resources have not yet settled the debt. What is happening?

The system may take 1 to 2 business days to process payments made through Payment of Services/Shopping in the ATM network or with a Visa/Mastercard credit card.

I failed a curriculum unit of the 1st semester. Can I sign up for the resit examination period in the 2nd semester?

No, you cannot.

Where are the calendars of the resit examination period published?

At the website of the School of Law on Programmes > Bachelor’s programme > Evaluation > Written Exams > Resit examination period.

If I do not register for the resit examination within 5 days from publication of the grade, can I still register?

Since you can only sign up within 5 days from having been excluded from the curriculum unit, but never before the resit examination period is over, you cannot enrol online; to enrol in the desired curriculum unit(s) of the resit examination period you must do so in person at the Academic Division of the School of Law, by filling in the enrolment form for the resit examination period, paying the fees for untimely registration at the Treasury of the School of Law and submitting the form duly filled in with the Academic Division.

Can two or more exams be scheduled on the same day during the resit examination period?

Two resit exams may be scheduled for the same day, i.e., resit exams of several curriculum units can be scheduled on consecutive days.

How can I cancel a resit examination?

You can send a request through the Online Resources and if the resit examination has not been taken yet, it shall be cancelled.

Where can I check Professors' email addresses?

Assignment of Credits/Equivalence

What is the difference between equivalence and recognition of the degree obtained abroad?

The equivalence to a foreign study cycle allows the holder of a foreign degree to have all the rights inherent to holding a specific study cycle, as taught by a Portuguese institution of higher education. The recognition of the degree solely grants all the rights inherent to having the degree. There is no mention of the specific study cycle of the institution responsible for the recognition. Conversely, the registration of the foreign degree is a simplified form of recognition, which is done by several institutions of higher education pursuant to the general decisions of the Committee of Recognition of Foreign Degrees. Further details are available online at NARIC – National Academic Recognition Information Centres.

Who determines which foreign degrees are subject to registration?

Foreign degrees subject to registration are determined by the Committee of Recognition of Foreign Degrees, which operates within the Division of Recognition, Mobility and International Cooperation of the Directorate-General for Higher Education.

Which diplomas (and respective countries) are subject to registration?

The list of diplomas is available at the online webpage of the Directorate-General of Higher Education: http://www.dges.mctes.pt/NR/rdonlyres/DEF331EC-2119-4F03-9B52-F322F3C42FBB/6475/Quadros_Deliberacoes.pdf.

After registration/recognition/equivalence, may I exercise my profession in Portugal?

The recognition of professional qualifications allows its holder to exercise in the national territory the profession for which he/she is qualified in the Member State of origin, under the same conditions as the professionals who obtained their qualifications in said territory.
Similarly to the case of qualifications obtained in the country where it is requested, the recognition of foreign qualifications may not be sufficient to do a certain job.
The recognition of professional qualifications is governed by specific legislation, available online at: www.dges.mctes.pt/DGES/pt/Reconhecimento/NARICENIC/Reconhecimento+Profissional/.

How much are the fees with regard to the equivalence and recognition of foreign degrees?
