The City of Coimbra has its own very special mystique. Most of the things to see and do in Coimbra and most of the places to eat or drink are within walking distance of each other and the rail station in Baixa. There are several hotels, restaurants, cafes, pastry shops and nightclubs in the city. You can travel using buses, trolleys or electric cars around the city. Most main monuments are in Baixa and Santa Clara where there are also smaller shops, restaurants and hotels. There are two student festivals that take place in Coimbra every year: Festa das Latas and Queima das Fitas.

Type of Internships
We organise curricular internships as law requires students to be enrolled in an educational institution in order to be able to do a placement. Curricular internships are as a part of your studies where the internship is worth ECTS credits, often as a part of the Erasmus plus program.
For European citizens, it is really easy to do an internship in Portugal. In order to do a curricular internship all you need is a training agreement from your university. A training agreement is a document which outlines all the details of your internship which proves that the internship is as a part of your studies. It must be signed by your university, the receiving company and by you, the intern.
For non-EU citizens, you may be required to obtain a Visa before your arrival to Portugal. For more information on eligibility and guidelines follow the link here.
