Signature of mobility agreements in an international St. Martin

  November 14th 2016

  Events

Last November 9th, took place in the Rectorate of U.Porto, one more session for the signature of scholarship agreements for outgoing mobility students, organised by the International Relations Office. This was another excellent proof of support of the U.Porto, during which the students had the opportunity to clarify their doubts at a time they are preparing to start an experience out of the country. The session ended with a moment of celebration and networking during the now-traditional International Magusto, which counted with the participation of over 450 people.

     

This U.Porto International Magusto (Traditional St. Martin's celebration), where  the typical roasted chestnuts couldn't be missing, as well as traditional Portuguese songs and dances of the Academic Music Group of the Faculty of Law of U.Porto and the Group of Ethnography and Folklore of U.Porto (NEFUP), was meant to present the Portuguese traditions of St. Martin's Day to our international students, who are undertaking a mobility period in the U.Porto, in the framework of international mobility programmes, as well as an opportunity for U.Porto students that will go in mobility to meet colleagues from their host countries.

All pictures are available on U.Porto's Facebook.
