Portugal International Schools

This is the online directory with the main International and English schools in Portugal that offer an Education in English. The programmes vary from the International Baccalaureate (I.B.) programme, which includes PYP, MYP and Diploma to the British GCSE and GCE examination systems. All schools in Portugal are required to satisfy the requirements of the Portuguese national system.

International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate Organization’s Diploma Programme was created in 1968. It is a demanding pre-university course of study that leads to examinations. It is designed for highly motivated secondary school students aged 16 to 19. The programme has earned a reputation for rigorous assessment, giving IB diploma holders access to the world’s leading universities. The Diploma Programme’s grading system is criterion-referenced, which means that each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement. These are consistent from one examination session to the next and are applied equally to all schools.The IBO has shown, over the course of 30 years, that students are well prepared for university work. They are accepted by universities in more than 110 countries.

Acceptance of the International Baccalaureate in Portuguese Universities from International Schools in Portugal.

In Portugal, IB Diploma holders are exempted from the Provas Especificas, Provas de Ingresso when the subjects of the student's diploma (up to a maximum of two) coincide with the subjects of the Provas.
