The University of Évora was founded in 1559 and for two centuries it distinguished itself for its role in the education of the elites and the missionaries of the Kingdom. Restored as a public University in 1973, it has aimed at meeting the new requirements of society.


It is specially oriented toward the education of human resources who want to achieve a higher position by merit and good service to the community. The University of Évora has established itself through the high quality of its teaching, associated with perennial values such as mutual respect, desire for knowledge, intellectual honesty and freedom of thought.


We are currently a modern University, with quality Research Centres, evaluated by international panels of the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT), with highly qualified teachers, integrating international networks and mobility programs that provide its students and professors with opportunities to contact other countries. We have a strong relationship with businesses and industries, always trying that the produced knowledge does not become confined to our historical walls.
