Cooperativa de Ensino Superior Politécnico e Universitário, CRL


Higher Education in CESPU, is essentially characterized by its high quality, accuracy and demanding level. CESPU has implemented an innovative educational project, with active teaching methodologies so that their students can benefit from the best possible education.

CESPU is particularly concerned with the practical training of their students in a real work environment context, allowing in an early stage, a direct contact with the hospitals and with the reality that they will eventually face in their professional careers. This concern is actually reflected in the currently growing number of health care units that the institution has of their own and those held in partnership.

CESPU educational establishments, enjoy a pleasant and welcoming academic environment, conducive not only to their professional but also to their personal and social development.  They are currently distributed between two academic campus, in the cities of Gandra (ISCS-N and ESSVS) and Vila Nova de Famalicão (ESSVA), with excellent facilities for higher education in the health field.

The study programs of CESPU are adapted for those who have a professional active life. There are also programs of intensive Portuguese language, for foreign students.
