Study in Portugal Network
Company (0-10 employees)
The Study in Portugal Network (SiPN) study abroad program is managed by the non-profit Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD), with the support of the Portuguese Ministry of Education and Science, the US Embassy in Lisbon, the Fulbright Commission in Portugal, AICEP, and the Lisbon City Municipality, among others. It offers North American students the opportunity to spend a semester, year or a summer in the vibrant capital city of Lisbon, Portugal. Eventually, SiPN seeks to expand beyond Lisbon to include other quality Portuguese universities in other cities.
The program’s primary aim is to increase the number of students from North America who study abroad in Portugal. SiPN provides an academically rigorous but flexible study abroad program that is designed to meet the needs of undergraduates from a variety of majors. Its core curriculum is focused on Portugal’s place in Europe and Lisbon as a safe and attractive cosmopolitan hub from which to explore themes related to the larger Lusophone community of some 260 million people.
SiPN is designed to serve many different kinds of students. For those who are not yet ready to take all of their coursework in Portuguese, they can still cover their major or general education-type requirements through a wide array of offerings taught in English, while also taking whichever class level they require for a Portuguese language course. Or for those who are ready to direct-enroll in regular university classes taught in Portuguese, we can provide that too.
