Faculty of Pharmacy


There is no teacher who replace traveling. Students who spend one or two semesters abroad come back with a renewed sense of citizenship in a shrinking world, and with a spirit of sharing acquired in countries defined by borders or oceans.

An international experience can improve the adaptability and development of other skills needed in an environment in constant changes. Students can study in exchange, paying tuition fees at the home institution and acquire credits in the curriculum of the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Coimbra.
