Thinking of studying in the Algarve?

Algarve University

For those thinking of studying in the Algarve, there is an interesting phenomenon taking place in the Algarve University numbers, thanks to a combination of two important factors. The numbers of enrolling students is increasing both from local students as well as foreign ones, due to the economic crisis and the fact that the university offers lectures in English.

A spokesperson for the Algarve University said that they are expecting around 300 international students to come follow their courses, while less local students will be going abroad. This is largely due to the economic crisis, which is making universities abroad much harder to attend financially, so some foreign students find the Algarve University as a more affordable alternative, and on the local front, it means that going to study abroad for Portuguese students is that much harder.
