About the University of Lisbon

The University of Lisbon is a Portuguese public university that has eighteen faculties and institutes throughout the city of Lisbon and surrounding municipalities.

This was the first university to be created in Portugal in 1288, but was later transferred to the portuguese city of Coimbra in 1537. In the late eighteenth century, it was reestablished in the portuguese capital.

Recently, in 2013, the University of Lisbon merged with the Technical University of Lisbon, forming the ULisboa that is now the largest university in Portugal with more than 48 000 students.
