 About Us

UMinho’s distance learning courses are online courses made available by UMinho through the Pro-Rectory’s New Teaching Projects. These courses allow the student to improve his/her knowledge and are certified by the university, using the European Credits Transfer System (ECTS) as reference. The online courses provide reso​urces and learning modules sequences, which are led by teachers specialized in their respective fields, who also organize courses evaluation and the certification of distance learni​ng students. The courses can be geared towards a specific area of knowledge or present a transversal and inclusive nature that encompasses several scientific fields. The courses’ attendance and completion may allow students to obtain training accreditation if they enroll in study cycles offered by UMinho. ​
