In this article, we explore all that this historic city has to offer students as well as the benefits you can enjoy during your time away at university. If you are interested in studying in Lisbon, find out more about our new luxury accommodation at the bottom of this blog.

Benefits of Studying In Lisbon

One of the reasons for choosing to create luxury student properties in Lisbon is due to the city’s rich heritage and excellent calibre of universities. Several Lisbon based universities are regularly featured in the QS World Universities list, including Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and Universidade Catolica Portuguesa (USP), which have faculties in Lisbon, Braga and Portugal’s other famous city, Porto.

As student cities go, they don’t really come much better than Lisbon. So, read our list of reasons why Lisbon is not only a great place to study, but also one of the best cities to live in:

Value For Money

If you are considering Lisbon as a location of study, then you will be happy to hear that the capital of Portugal is a city that enjoys the finer things in life, and an excellent choice for Collegiate tenants.

It is by far the cheapest city in Western Europe, but this does not mean you are sacrificing any quality or culture. The cityscape is lined with incredible architecture, a wealth of fine food and a lively atmosphere to keep yourself well occupied during your enriching university experience.

Warm Welcome

Another reason for considering student accommodation in Lisbon, is the famously warm welcome you will receive from the locals.  Wherever you are in the city, students of all nationalities and backgrounds are welcomed into the city, which has one of the most diverse populations in Europe.

The locals aren’t shy when it comes to hugs, and of course beer is a big part of Lisbon’s culture, making it easy for British students to settle into the Lisbon way of life.
