Second Cycle Courses
The attendance of a master's degree course is an option for students who have a 1st Cycle Degree and wish to value their skills or enrich their competence.
The master's degree is a study cycle with a duration comprised of four semesters corresponding to 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. Master's degrees are offered in three scientific areas: Social Sciences and Humanities, Management and Economics, Technologies and Architecture.
To choose the master of your choice and consult specific information of each master's degree, offered by one of the four ISCTE-IUL Schools, search here.
For students coming from countries outside the EU tuition fees vary between € 4600 and € 7000 (between € 4600 and € 5100 for social and humanities master's degrees, between € 4600 and € 7000 for Technologies master's degrees and € 7000 for management masters).
Students from PALOP (Portuguese-Speaking African Countries) pay the same tuition as national students.
Erasmus Mundus Programmes undertaken by ISCTE-IUL
Under the premises of the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree funding programme (Erasmus+ - Key Action 1) ISCTE-IUL participates as coordinator or partner university in the following programmes: MFamily, Global-MINDS and TourDC. All are a comprehensive 2- year study programme delivered entirely in English.
The European Master in Social Work with Families and Children (MFamily) will begin this year (2018) its 6th edition. MFamily is a programme jointly run by a Consortium of the following universities: ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Portugal - as coordinator), University of Gothenburg (Sweden), University of Stavanger (Norway) and the Makerere University (Uganda).
The European Master in Social Work with Families and Children aims to educate specialists in social work with vulnerable and marginalized families and children in different cultural contexts, preparing them to work within public authorities at all levels, non-governmental organizations and private sector. The Programme’s official language is English and the students spend the first semester in Lisbon (Portugal), following to Stavanger (Norway) in the second semester and to Gothenburg (Sweden) in the third term, having then the opportunity to go to one of the four countries in order to complete their dissertation. The students also benefit from language courses, cultural experiences, field visits and internship opportunities in all partner universities. Bearing the prestigious brand of recognition from the European Commission, the Programme awards students with a Joint Diploma from the four Consortium universities.
Some of the successful applicants, selected on merit criteria, benefit from the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship which also provides travel costs reimbursement and insurance coverage. More information about the Master programme and the application process can be consulted at www.mfamily.eu
The European Master in the Psychology of Global Mobility, Inclusion and Diversity in Society (Global-MINDS) will admit the second cohort of students in 2018 and the 3rd in 2019. The Global-MINDS is a programme jointly run by a Consortium of the following universities: ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Portugal - as coordinator), SWPS (Poland), University of Oslo (Norway), University of Limerick (Ireland), and Koç University (Turkey).
Global-MINDS aims to deliver high quality international training in Social and Cultural psychology. The Master courses provide students the opportunity to acquire in-depth theoretical knowledge on themes of extreme social relevance, including diversity and inclusion, global mobility and acculturation, as well as culture and organisations.
Global-MINDS students start either at ISCTE-IUL or SWPS. They then spend their 2nd semester at one of the other three Partner Universities. The different mobility paths ensure that students experience the highest level of diversity in educational contents as well as cultural, socioeconomic and academic conditions. Students can request to stay at the same university after the second semester or request additional mobilities to any of the Partner Institutions for their third (internship) and fourth (master thesis) semesters. Graduates of the Global-MINDS programme are awarded a Joint Diploma.
Some of the successful applicants, selected on merit, benefit from the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship which covers the tuitions fees and provides living and travel costs allowance.

The European Master of Science in Tourism Development and Culture (TourDC) has been recently approved and will begin in 2019 its 1th edition. The TourDC is a programme jointly run by a Consortium of the following universities: The University of Glasgow (United Kingdom - as coordinator), ISCTE – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (Portugal), The University of Malta (Malta), Lund University (Sweden) and Wageningen University (Netherlands).
TourDC develops an awareness of the importance of culture as a set of values and meanings underpinning societies, as well as culture as an asset to be sold. It recognises the need for sustaining cultural heritage, to grow resilience within communities that wish to develop tourism in an ethically sustainable way, examining the impacts of tourism on individuals, destinations and society. The student will therefore get a broad introduction to the tourism industry and types of tourists as well as a deeper understanding of contemporary issues relating to the natural, cultural and urban environments and sustainability. TourDC has a common and integrated approach manifest in courses that relate to the central objectives of TourDC, complement one another and add distinctive attributes to the academic subject matter.
Lecturers from the degree-awarding Consortium Partner Universities (CPUs) of Glasgow, Malta, ISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon and Lund will contribute to the courses at other CPUs’ campuses, giving a concrete element of jointness and ensuring a continuing exchange of ideas, approaches and topics taught through collaborative teaching arrangements. A fifth, non-degree-awarding CPU (Wageningen University) will deliver a Summer School (SSch). The combination of the above aspects makes this interdisciplinary degree exceptional. No other tourism programme offers the depth and breadth covered by TourDC which will equip students for the challenges the industry faces in the future by combining cultural awareness and appreciation with an insight into managing resources, and an understanding of development in a holistic sense.
Some of the successful applicants, selected on merit criteria, benefit from the Erasmus Mundus Scholarship which also provides travel costs reimbursement and insurance coverage. More information about the TourDC will be announced soon.
third Cycle Courses
The attendance of a doctoral degree course also called a 3rd cycle course, is an option for those who wish to certify their ability to develop research in a particular field of science. Doctoral programmes are offered in the areas of Social and Human Sciences, Management and Economics, Technologies and Architecture. They have a minimum duration of six semesters, and confer 180 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) credits. To choose the doctorate of your preference, click here.
Please note that each master's and doctoral programme has specific application and admission requirements, different deadlines and academic fees.
