This four-week program in July provides a unique opportunity for students to experience the language, culture and history of Portugal in one of the most vibrant and safest cities in Europe. Portuguese is spoken by about 250 million people, making it the fifth most spoken language in the world. Whether students have studied another Latin language, want to practise their Portuguese language skills or want to learn a new language altogether, this language course is tailored to meet students’ specific learning objectives. The program is taught by the Instituto de Cultura e Língua Portuguesa (ICLP), a branch of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Lisbon, which is located in downtown Lisbon.

Study Abroad - International Exchange - General Information

  • The World Could Be Yours!
    • Arts & Science students in all departments are encouraged to participate in the international and Canadian exchanges offered through the International Student Exchange Office. These exchanges allow you to experience new cultures and languages in an academic setting while earning credits towards your U of T degree. Exchanges may be for one term or a full year, and most are open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Cost
    • The cost of an exchange includes your U of T tuition plus incidental fees, along with the cost of living and studying abroad. While on exchange, you are still eligible to receive government assistance such as OSAP. There are also many specific scholarships and bursaries run by various U of T offices, and the ISXO itself administers a needs-based bursary program; for exchange students who qualify, this bursary will usually cover at least the cost of airfare.
  • Eligibility
    • In general, undergraduate or graduate U of T students who have completed at least one year of full-time studies, with a minimum CGPA of 2.0, are eligible to apply. You must also achieve a minimum annual GPA of 2.5 for the year during which you apply. In addition, some exchange programs have special language requirements.
  • Destinations
    • Arts & Science students may choose from over 70 universities in: Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the West Indies.
