The Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China has approved for the first time a master degree in the teaching of Portuguese as a foreign language, developed within the co-operation framework between the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies (GDUFS) and the University of Coimbra (UC), with the support of the Macao Polytechnic Institute (IPM).
From 2016/2017 onwards part of the master programme can be attended at the GDUFS campus. The programme will be mainly taught by native teachers of the UC and will follow the same structure, pedagogic model and assessment system of UC. Check the study programme here.
This new programme offers a master degree awarded by the University of Coimbra, the leading institution in the teaching of Portuguese language for foreign students, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage for its role as the centre of production of Portuguese-language literature and thinking in the world over the centuries.
