Instituto Politécnico de Leiria

We’re a public higher education institution founded in 1980 and established across the region of Leiria and Oeste. We’re committed to high standards of education and research and concerned about producing knowledge of high cultural, economic and social value.

We have five schools, located in the cities of Leiria (the School of Education and Social Sciences; the School of Technology and Management; and the School of Health Sciences), Caldas da Rainha (School of Arts and Design) and Peniche (School of Tourism and Maritime Technology).

Our work is driven by five core values: inclusion, cooperation, responsibility, innovation, and critical and entrepreneurial thinking.
