Mobility and International Relations

Welcome to ESHTE!


At ESHTE we have a motto: "We teach to innovate and innovate to teach". We must add the word 'welcome' to this top-level training maxim inserted in a dynamic inherent in the Hospitality industry. For nearly a decade, ESHTE has been welcoming international students and also sending its 'diplomats' to the four corners of the world, whether through its internships, community programs or exchange agreements.

Proof that success has guided ESHTE International's action is the growing number of students we send, but also that of young people who, increasingly, decide to come and study with us. They start out as foreign visitors, but soon become members of the ESHTE family and at the time of farewell,  they understand the cultural meaning of the word 'Saudade'.

For you, for the first time, you enter our website, the invitation is: prepare your bags and participate in this great adventure of internationalization in Portugal!

2016/2017 Competition

What is?

The Vasco da Gama Program started as a National Initiative, originated in the CCISP (Coordinating Council of the Polytechnic Institutes), which allows the mobility of students between public national polytechnic institutions of higher education  (mainland Portuguese and Islands).

Students who wish to participate in this program may take a period of mobility in any National Polytechnic Institute, studies for a period of six months to one academic year.

Students interested in participating must complete and submit a Application Form and a Study Program in the International Relations Office, duly signed by the entities indicated in the latter document.

The fact that an institution integrates the Vasco da Gama program does not oblige it to receive students from another institution. This mobility is always on time, verified on a case-by-case basis and depends on the availability of the receiving institution.

This program does not have any financial support beyond that which the student already benefits through the NAS.

Beginning of mobility: they can benefit from this mobility as of the second semester of each academic year.
