Applicants who have obtained the Certificado de Conclusao de 2 Grau, the Diploma de Tecnico de Nivel Medio or the Concurso Vestibular would not normally be considered for direct entry to undergraduate programmes, and would be expected to undertake a Foundation programme before being eligible to apply.
