Academic Calendar

In 2020/21 teaching activities at FEP will once again be carried out on a face-to-face basis, although part of the timetable may be distance learning, according to the specificities of each programme. All the spaces of the FEP are prepared for the return of the face-to-face activity, namely with regard to its regular hygiene, limitation of maximum capacity and the creation of distinct circulation circuits.
The main information related to the functioning of the classes is available in SIGARRA, through authentication (access credentials generated at registration).


There are two types of classes in the bachelor programes: ‘theory’ and ‘practical classes’.
In each curricular unit, the ‘practical’ classes are given in person at the FEP premises, with each student assigned to a class. In the case of ‘theory’ classes, there will be only one class for each curricular unit. These classes will also be held at the FEP premises but, given the capacity of the classrooms, only a limited number of students will be able to attend in person. The remaining students (who will be the majority) will attend the ‘theory’ classes at a distance, in synchronous mode.

Theoretical classes are designated in the schedule with the acronym COMP


Students will be assigned to classes by the Academic Services and will only be able to attend classes in person in the group to which they have been assigned, even if there are free places in the classrooms; this is the only way to ensure, in general, that the number of students in class is compatible with the rules of distance and that close and frequent contact groups are of limited size.

Distance learning

For support of the ‘theoretical’ lessons that will have to be provided on a hybrid basis (face-to-face and available at a distance in synchronous mode) the Panopto application will be used., platform that integrates with SIGARRA and Moodle.

Institutional email

The institutional email is one of the most important channels of communication and by this way the U.Porto communicates with its students, sending information, invitations for events and initiatives, and much more. We therefore advise you to check the access to institutional email after enrolment.
The email service for new students is available on the Microsoft Office365 platform.
