As a part of the Study in Portugal program, FLAD has developed several efforts aimed at increasing Portugal’s presence at the NAFSA conference in Boston — the world’s largest gathering of professionals in international education. As in previous years, Portugal was present at NAFSA in San Diego in 2014.
Since 2012, Portugal has been participating in NAFSA with a “Study in Portugal” booth with representatives from the Portuguese universities.
Every year in the United States or Canada, NAFSA – the Association of International Educators – organizes a conference on international education, gathering over 8,000 participants. NAFSA provides opportunities for student recruitment, professional networking, training (workshops and seminars) and visits to local universities. An education expo takes place in conjunction with the conference with representatives from universities from all over the world.
