Who can apply?

In each academic year, the Universidade Autónoma de Lisboa, Luís de Camões, provides the regime for the attendance of isolated curricular units, included in the study plans of its undergraduate, master's and doctoral study cycles.

Students admitted to the frequency of isolated curricular units are subject to the rules of operation of the same, being able to choose whether or not to implement the assessment regime. In Doctoral courses, enrollment in an assessment regime, regardless of obtaining approval, is subject to a maximum number of 30 credits accumulated during the student's academic career.

For this purpose, the set of enrollments in curricular units of the same cycle of studies of the same educational institution is considered as an academic path, regardless of the operating regime.

Thesis/Thesis Seminar course units are not eligible

The curricular units of the same cycle of studies can only be credited up to a maximum limit of 50% of the number of ECTS of the curricular component of the 1st year of the Doctorate.

The attendance of isolated curricular units, even with success, does not give the right to the recognition of the ownership of part or all of the courses in which they are integrated.

Approved curricular units are credited, within the limits set by law and if the holder has or will acquire the status of student of a higher education cycle of studies.
