UMa issues a new student guide (EN)

The digital version of the Student Guide was made available in the academic year 2011 | 2012. The main reasons for this change are the severe economic situation, and the required budget restraint, to be environmental-friendly and be more attractive and dynamic to our target audience.

The University of Madeira, a public institution which is young, dynamic, open and attentive to the needs of the archipelago and the Euro-Atlantic area, aims at preparing its students to be full citizens of the 21st century global society and, through its entrepreneurial nature, the quality of its research and its spirit of service, to contribute to the economic, social and cultural development of Madeira, Portugal and the World.

The mission of the University of Madeira is to find appropriate solutions, within a framework of responsibility, equity and sustainability, which contribute to the development and assertion of Madeira and Portugal in a globalized and dynamic world.
• We exist to prepare our students for the challenges of a global society, providing them with the scientific knowledge, technical skills and a cross-cutting training that enables them to become citizens of the world, creative and independent, responsible and professional, tolerant and attentive to environmental, cultural and human challenges of a society that is intended to be sustainable and equitable.
We exist to collaborate with the community, governments, enterprises, professional associations and higher education and research institutions, discovering, disseminating and applying knowledge for their economic, social and cultural development.
We exist to collaborate in the evolution of Madeira and the surrounding communities, opening them up to the world, establishing and valuing their cultural identity and responding to their specific needs in training, research and culture.
• We develop our activity seeking to provide our students, scholars and employees, the best possible conditions so that training and research are conducted within an excellence, equity and tolerance framework.
