Erasmus+ provides opportunities for more than 4 million Europeans to study, train and gain work experience and perform volunteer work abroad, supporting cooperation and the development of partnerships between European institutions and other parts of the world.


UMOVE(ME) - International Credit Mobility

The International Credit Mobility (ICM) is part of the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ Programme and allows a Higher Education Institution (HEI) in a partner country to send students, teaching and non-teaching staff into studying, teaching and training missions to an HEI in a Program country and vice versa.

UMOVE(ME) is the project of University of Minho(UMinho) under ICM 2017, which allows UMinho to receive/send students, teaching and non-teaching staff from/to 27 partner countries outside Europe.

About the Project UMOVE(ME):


In order to find detailed information about the unit courses you should take the following steps:  > select the relevant option “Bachelors and Integrated Masters Degrees” > select a specific course > go to tab “Study Plan” > select Couse unit.


Although most course units are taught in Portuguese, there are some specific study areas with lectures offered in English. For courses formally taught in Portuguese there might be the possibility to have access to bibliography, course materials, tutorial support and assessment in English. There can also be the option to develop research/project work with supervision in English or in a common language between the student and the tutor. Students should contact the teachers once they arrive in order to check/agree on these possibilities.
