Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – Portugal
Also this year, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying at a different university. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.
Many students that went to study in Portugal have shared their experience. A total of 519 students left a review of their experience in Portugal, with an overall satisfaction grade of 8.8, ranking 14th in this year’s award session! 33 different schools have been reviewed, of which 9 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.
