More Info: 

The Polytechnic Institute of Coimbra was created in 1979 when polytechnic education was introduced in Portugal.

We are a public institute of higher education, which is composed of six schools (Coimbra College of Agriculture, Coimbra College of Education, Oliveira do Hospital College of Technology and Management, Coimbra College of Health Technology, Coimbra Institute of Accounting and Administration and Coimbra Institute of Engineering), Social Welfare Services (SAS) and the Central Administration (SC).

As one may deduce from the names of our schools, the Institute has to offer a large variety of studies, which also include cross-border education in partnership with other European institutions of higher education, for both bachelor’s and master degree levels.

Coimbra College of Education (ESEC) was created and integrated into Coimbra Polytechnic Institute in 1979. As the successor to the Regular Primary School of Coimbra, ESEC initiates its task in teacher training in 1987 with the following courses: Pre-primary Education; Primary Education, in Portuguese and French Language Teaching and Music Teaching. Nowadays, provides not only Primary and Pre-primary Teacher training, but also education in Social and Educational Recreation, Communication, Tourism and Arts.

ESEC provides a space for living and learning, where different kinds of studies cohabit, each vitalising the space in its own manner.
