Message of the Rector
Hello, and welcome to UPT.
“University” comes from Latin and roughly means a community of scholars. Universitas also means a “whole” and indeed University surely means Global. Global community, Global research, Global knowledge and Global learning.
Universities are about people and knowledge. About people cooperating, researching, teaching, supporting, endorsing, learning. There is no University without people and that is why people, whether prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbour, or visitor are most welcome to our webcampus. I wish you a pleasant stay and hope to meet you personally in our outstanding Asprela Campus, in the Best European Award 2014 city of Oporto in this old, yet vibrant, country that is Portugal.
The Rector of UPT
