DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

The UA Intercultural Area (UA_I) is located in the catacumbas “vaults” and it is here where foreign nationality students should go if they want clarification about any issue relating to their stay at the UA. As a guidance service, it plays an important role in first line support to clarify any doubts, and help resolve issues in the academic area, social support, and accessibility, among others, as well as liaising with various local entities to resolve any issues in Portugal.

In addition to being a place where international students can get help dealing with practical questions, it is also a setting for exhibitions, concerts and other activities.
