We are pleased to introduce the University of Maia – ISMAI and we hope you will choose our University Institute.

At ISMAI, you will not only find outstanding education but also a large and modern university campus with excellent transport facilities, which include the Metro station ISMAI, rIght next to our university institute.

The atmosphere on campus is defined by cutting-edge technology and a close, almost family-like relationship with students.

The quality of ISMAI's degree programmes is nationally and internationally recognised.

All courses are accredited by the Portuguese Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education and are taught by highly qualified academic staff. The number of teachers who hold a PhD degree is highly above the number required by law.

ISMAI is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

ISMAI students benefit  from personalised support from our Vice-Rector's Office for International Relations and the International Relations Office, which is always available to provide the support they need to facilitate their integration in the academic community.


We hope to see you at ISMAI soon.
