Short Cycle (TeSP)
Professional Higher Tecnhical Courses are short cycles with 120 ECTS. They last two years and do not confer an academic degree. The successful conclusion leads to the award of the diploma of professional superior technician.
These Short Cycle programmes (also known by the Portuguese acronym TeSP) include:
- Courses of general and scientific formation;
- Technical training courses;
- Work-related training (up to 1 academic year).
By completing a TeSP study programme, you’ll get a qualification equivalent to level 5 of the National Qualification Framework.
