The Instituto Piaget is a renowned Portuguese Private Higher Education Institution, inspired by the teachings of the celebrated Swiss psychologist, Jean Piaget. Its wide range of courses includes degrees, master's degrees and postgraduate courses in several areas, as well as many other professional and personal enhancement courses.
An innate international vocation
Founded in 1979, the innovative quality of its teaching methods and the high reputation of the thousands of professionals it has formed have enabled it to expand rapidly throughout the national territory and beyond.
Today, the Instituto Piaget is present in 6 countries on 3 continents - Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau and Mozambique, in addition to its 4 Campi distributed throughout the Portuguese territory.
In Portugal, the Instituto Piaget has become, increasingly, a reference institution for international students. These students, from a wide range of backgrounds (many of them through the Erasmus Program), already make up about 20% of their students in the current academic year.
For this demand, the wide acceptance of Instituto Piaget diplomas by the institutions of the European Union and around the world contributes greatly.
Proximity education, Excellence training
The institution's vision and values include Excellence in training - reflected in the high Employability rates of all its courses - and the environment of close proximity and familiarity that live in its Campi, among students, teachers and employees.
The Instituto Piaget places the human person, in all its diversity and complexity, at the center of all its activity. Therefore, from the first contact until after their formation, each student of Instituto Piaget is accompanied by a multidisciplinary team, committed to ensuring their academic success and their maximum well-being.
International students are given special care by our teams, multiplying the special support provided with the objective of ensuring easy and fast integration in all aspects of their academic experience: Portuguese language teaching, accommodation, application formalities and registration, etc.
