Inforestudante is a service available by means of any internet access point, restricted only for students, alumni and applicants to the UC and it requires a valid username and password.
This service was developed in 1999, updated in 2000 and 2002 and is currently part of NONIO, the University's information system (New University Academic System) developed in 2007. NONIO comprises the academic management of all the cycles of studies, courses and students in the University of Coimbra and includes all related parties: staff, professors and students.
In 2007, it became operational in the FCTUC (Faculty of Sciences and Technology), and in 2009 it began its extension to the other Faculties, which was completed in 2011/2012.
InforEstud@nte is an interactive curricular and pedagogical management service in which each student is univocally identified by his/her Student Number and has access to:
- the application process, enrollment, registration for classes and exams (whenever required by UC’s regulation);
- grades, weighted average grade, and a simulator for the course of study, graduation and possible ineligibility situations;
- classes summaries and pedagogical support materials;
- tuition payment plan and ATM payment reference number;
- issuance and payment of electronically generated certificates;
- regulations, user manuals and other documents;
- general, varied and individual notices.
The UC remains committed to facilitating students' lives thus avoiding their going to the Academic Centres. For this reason, new features are constantly being planned for this communication and information platform.
Due to the high number of students using this service, and the consequent need for creating different initial accesses for each student, the first login is accomplished by means of a combination of the student’s personal data. However, these data on their own do not fully guarantee students an exclusive access to their personal information.
To ensure greater data confidentiality, all students must login for the first time because this forces them to change their user name and password that will be required for future logins. Only after the “Changing of password” the student may access the information provided by the service.
If you forget your password, you can submit a recovery request at any time and it will be sent to the email you have registered on Inforestud@nte.
Inforestud@nte offers maximum security concerning the searches, and the introduction and changes of the password in the curricular form of the student since it connects by means of SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer). The SSL protocol became a standard for authenticating websites and encrypting communications between users and Web servers.
One of the big advantages is its transparency to the user (the user is not required to do anything to establish a secure connection), and its main objective is to guarantee confidentiality and integrity of the information and authentication of the identity of the parties that communicate with each other.
PLEASE NOTE! :
To confirm whether the information is being transmitted securely, the web address must begin with HTTPS:// and there must appear a browser padlock icon.
For greater security, you should change your password periodically using the "Change Password" option.
