Universidade Católica Portuguesa (Lisbon) is an exchange destination for bachelor and master students of Utrecht University School of Law.
Transnational Law Curriculum: there are no entrance requirements as it is part of the undergraduate programme. It's available for both regular and Exchange students. Nonetheless, please note that these seminars are quite demanding and even though these do not correspond to 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th year courses, the TLC is not available to 1st year students.This said, there are obviously more introductory courses like Federalism and the European Union and more advanced ones like International law of the Sea.

- Proficiency in English by the University of Cambridge;

Universidad Católica Portuguesa recommends International Students to book a hostel before arriving in Lisbon and find a place to live once they get here. This way they can see the flats, negotiate the rent and talk with the landlord before committing to a permanent house. As a reference, a 3 bedroom apartment in Lisbon can range from 750€ to 1200€ per month and a room in a shared flat may vary from 200€ to 400€, depending on the quality, size and location.
