Academic calendar

UFP follows a continuous evaluation system. This means students will only take exams at theoretical curricular units, theoretical-practical and practical non-laboratorial if they fail the continuous evaluation and the teachers accept them for the exams period.

2020-2021 academic year

Please note that due to the current sanitary situation and consequent uncertainty, it might be possible that our academic calendar suffers some changes, as our face-to-face teaching can be replaced by blended learning in case physical mobility proves to be somewhat limited or impossible.
