Students will stay at a University of Lisbon residence, which is a 30-minute bus ride from the ICLP campus. The dormitory is home to both international and Portuguese students. Students in the program will be accommodated in double rooms. The total cost of accommodation is CAD $550. Students may opt to purchase meals at the cafeteria, eat out or choose to do their own cooking.
No group flight is available for this program; students must make their travel arrangements. Please note that if choose to arrive earlier or leave later than the available dates for the accommodation options you have selected, you will be responsible for arranging your own housing for the extra day(s).
All students are responsible for making sure that their necessary travel documents are in order. Information on entry requirements is available from the Portuguese Consulate.
As of the time of publication (December 2019), Canadian citizens only need a passport valid for six months beyond their return date to enter Portugal as a visitor. Citizens of other countries may have additional requirements.
NOTE: International students who need to apply for a short-stay visa should apply for it in Toronto. Students can request a letter of support to assist with their visa application by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org after the program deposit has been paid to the Summer Abroad office.
