Vocational training Programmes shorter than one semester
(or Implementation of the semester rule)
Are vocational and technical training programmes in enterprises included in the UOE data collection (YES/NO)? If Yes, how is the 10% school based component over the whole length of the programme assessed?

Are all programmes of shorter duration than one semester, full time equivalent duration as defined nationally excluded from the UOE data collection (YES/NO)? If NO, how does the coverage deviate from the UOE Manual recommendation?
Yes. Not applicable. In Portugal, in non-tertiary education, all the educational courses/programmes are organised by the educational institutions.
However, in practice, all the types of vocational courses involve either internships or the completion, in parallel, of the practical and technical components in a working environment (in businesses).

12. Comment Top

Since 2011/2012, the foreign students in international exchange programmes that undertake part of their studies at a Portuguese HEI, but credited at their home institution, were excluded from enrollment statistics.

Since 2006/2007, students that complete education programmes, or stages of education programmes, that do not correspond to full ISCED level completion, are excluded from national graduate statistics.

The decrease in ISCED 4 can be explained by the extinction of ISCED 4 programmes in tertiary education institutions.
