Inforestudante is a service available by means of any internet access point, aimed to students, alumni and applicants to the UC and it requires a valid username and password.
This service was developed in 1999 and redesigned in 2007 by means of the development of the NONIO information technology system (New University Academic System). NONIO aggregates the academic management and several pedagogical components of all the cycles of studies, courses and students of the University of Coimbra and includes all its related parties: non-teaching 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 of the University, which was completed in 2011/2012.
InforEstud@nte is an interactive service of curricular and pedagogical management in which each student is univocally identified by his/her Student Number and has access to the different academic procedures he/she has to carry out during his/her pathway at the UC, from the application, registration for a course and exams to the assessment and final certification.
The UC remains committed to facilitating students' lives thus avoiding their going to the Academic Assistance 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.
At any time, your password, can be recovered by submit a recovery request 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 change of the password in the student’s curricular information file, since it connects by means of SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer). The SSL protocol became a standard for authenticating websites and encrypting communication 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.
