Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

bolinha_preta How to enrol at the UC ?

The enrolment is carried out at InforEstudante, the information system in which your academic pathway is registered. A few hours after the publication of the results by DGES, the UC assigns the Student Number to all students admitted to the UC.

The UC makes this number available at InforEstudante, by means of the link Consultar utilizador - Colocados DGES » (Consult User – Students admitted | DGES).

bolinha_pretaDo you have to come to Coimbra in order to enrol at the UC?

No. At the UC the enrolment and registration for the curricular units to be attended can be fully carried out online by means of the InforEstudante.

In the first phase, due to a greater number of admitted students, we have prepared a unique space in which it will be possible to carry out all the steps so that you become a UC student, with the assistance/support of the Students from the Academic Association and the Staff of the UC Academic Services.
