We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Portugal can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.
For more specific advice about coming from Portugal to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Portuguese offices or our own international advice team.
As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels (Certificado de Fim de Estudos Secundarios). A portfolio is required for most art and design courses.
For postgraduate students, we looks for a qualification equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. This includes students with a Licenciado or students with a Diploma de Estudos Superiores Especializados (DESE).
As an EEA national you do not need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK.
EU financial support
EU students are entitled to apply for some financial support in the UK, a tuition fee loan and an EU bursary.
