Summer Course Finder

SiPN summer program is split into two 4-week sessions: June and July. Students can combine sessions.

In each session students may pick and choose from classes that are developed by SiPN, direct enrollment classes, and Portuguese language classes at various levels and intensities. Students may take no more than 12 ECTS (typically 6 US credits) in any 4-week session.

We also offer an internship program that requires an 8-week stay minimum, June and July. (SiPN internships are for academic credit, variable credits, click here for more info on internships).

* Note that these options require paying our higher 12 ECTS fee

We do not recommend combining any extra classes with ISCTE business options due to the many companies’ visits included. The higher SiPN fee for 12 ECTS (despite only awarding 6 ECTS/class) is to compensate for the higher tuition fees these course options require.
