University of Algarve

Located in the south of Portugal, in a region of Mediterranean climate sought by thousands of tourists, the University of Algarve (UAlg) is headquartered in Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Its privileged location next to the International Airport of Faro and the great number of new air routes connecting to the main Portuguese cities (Porto and Lisbon), Europe and the World, as well as the excellent conditions that, together with the region, have to offer, this academy acquires a central and international status, visible in the streets of the city of Faro, which receives annually about 1,700 international students from more than 84 nationalities. The Algarve also has several diplomatic and consular representations, with the Consulate General of Brazil in the city of Faro.

The Algarve is recognized as a cosmopolitan region with high levels of security. Being a medium-sized city with a very welcoming and affordable lifestyle, Faro offers a range of accommodation options ranging from 125 Euros to 300 Euros (room/month). The university canteens offer full meals at a reduced price (2,30 Euros - 4,10 Euros) and the transportation within the city and between university campuses will cost 36,80 Euros (monthly pass). Overall, the cost of living in Faro is lower than the European average.

The UAlg has been multiplying and consolidating its training offer in its three campuses, two in the city of Faro and one in Portimão, and offers undergraduate and integrated master's degrees, masters and doctorates, which are distributed in its major areas of training: Arts, Communication and Heritage; Social and Education Sciences; Science and Health Technologies; Exact and Natural Sciences; Economics, Management and Tourism; Engineering and Technologies. With classrooms and study rooms, amphitheatres and laboratories for teaching and research activities, libraries with online access, Wi-Fi in all campuses, accommodation for more than 600 students, catering services, medical services, cultural and sporting activities, the University of Algarve and the region provide the ideal conditions to study, investigate, undertake and foster personal enrichment.

Scientific research has been a fundamental factor for the development of the University, placing it in a trajectory of national and international affirmation. The excellence of its research and development activities translates into a dense network of partnerships established with universities and R&D institutions from around the world in a wide range of fields.
 
With 42 years of existence, it appears for the fourth time in the Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings 2021, which analyses the performance of higher education institutions created 50 years or less ago, standing out in the indicator that evaluates international projection.

Also the Shanghai Ranking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects 2021 selected the University of Algarve in six scientific areas: Tourism Management and Hospitality (position 76-100); Oceanography (position 151-200); Ecology (position 301-400); Agricultural Sciences, Earth Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences (positions 401-500).

Committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN, in 2020 integrates for the first time the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, which assesses the performance and contribution of universities to the SDGs, placing in position 201-300, among 766 Higher Education Institutions from 85 countries that met the inclusion requirements.
