Dozens of young American students gathered at FLAD to hear all about Portugal and the tremendous opportunity it is to study in our country, something that they themselves came to discover while living and choosing Lisbon as their destination to study abroad.

In a session marked by the sharing of ideas not only about living and studying in Portugal but also about the experience of doing so through the Study in Portugal Network program, as well as the opportunities that follow this experience with the support of many institutions, as for example, of the Fulbright Commission Portugal, with whom FLAD has maintained a fundamental partnership for several years, was also discussed.

The positive balance withdrawn from the session demonstrates once again how SiPN and FLAD continue to attract American students to our universities and contribute to the internationalization of the Portuguese higher education system and institutions.

In addition to bringing together American students from more than twenty universities in the United States, the session was also attended by the U.S. ambassador to Portugal, George E. Glass, and the president of FLAD, Rita Faden, both in the center, and Elsa Henriques, member of FLAD’s executive board, to the right.
