Top Universities in Aveiro for International Students

These have been vetted by Beyond the States to be the best universities in Aveiro for international students. They are guaranteed to offer English-taught programs without any foreign language requirements.

Why should I study here?

Aveiro, next to the sea and the ria (estuary), is crossed by a network of channels through which moliceiros (local boats) meander. These slim, colorful vessels used to be used to collect algae and seaweed, but today they are for sightseeing trips. Visiting on foot does not mean too much effort either, since the city is flat, and anyone who enjoys cycling can take a BUGA-cycle made freely available by Aveiro City Council. Aveiro has a number of buildings in the Art Nouveau style that are worth seeing. 

Many are situated along the main channel, but there are some off the beaten track and in other locations. But before this treat, you can comfort your stomach with the delights that the sea offers, such as shellfish, fresh fish grilled or casseroled, and eels, characteristic of this region, which is served casseroled or marinated. There are several places nearby that are worth visiting. 

Crossing the Ria by boat, you pass through the saltpans and can admire the whiteness of the salt, which during the summer season is formed into pyramids to dry in the sun. On the other side, the São Jacinto Dunes Natural Reserve is about 15 minutes away, with its almost wild beaches.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
