The Academic Organization Office (GOA) is a facilitator service to assist with academic issues. We help with applications, requests and other documents, simplifying the recognition of qualifications and competences process.
GOA is responsible for the educational, academic and disciplinary matters of P.PORTO’s students, whose competence does not belong to the respective organic units or management bodies with specific responsibility.
Thus, its responsibilities include drawing up notices and warnings related to enrollment, registration, examinations, tests, transfers, readmissions, course changes, special qualifications, payment of fees and registering all acts related to students’ academic life.
The P.PORTO Division of Information and Documentation collects and prepares all the documentation necessary to the management and organisation of the institution, by making publicly available Meeting Minutes, Strategic Plans, Rules and Regulations, Resolutions of the Management Council, among other documents from each training or research unit or transverse to all management bodies.
All the emails that you receive are in Portuguese - even if you don’t speak Portuguese. The level of the studies is very low. I’m following my masters here on Erasmus, but it’s way easier than where I study (Belgium). But it’s a fun university to go to. It’s just very easy and the communication is not very good.
The university has good infrastructure, there are good teachers, but I confess that I was disappointed with the programme.
Politécnico do Porto is a great University to learn about practice, they don't focus on theory nor hypotheticals. They taught me: work ethic, critical thinking, and how to manage real-life cases. But in terms of growing as a professional, I didn't feel as challenged as I was expecting, although it did teach me a lot.
