Universidade do Porto

The University of Porto was officially established on 22 March 1911, shortly after the proclamation of the Portuguese Republic. Its historical roots date back to the 18th century when a combination of training experiences would be transformed into a university.

U.Porto's mission is to produce scientific, cultural and artistic knowledge, offer higher education firmly rooted in research, invest in the social and economic valorisation of knowledge and actively participate in the progress of the communities to which the university belongs.
