Our potential
People, synergies and a sea of opportunities

Here, the concept of proximity is widely experienced, without any barriers between the community, providing closer contact, aimed at adapting the experience and background of each individual to their patterns of expectation, progress and learning.
The privileged location of the region, next to Faro International Airport, and the large number of new air routes connecting to several European cities, as well as the excellent conditions, combined with the synergies it establishes with the business ecosystem, allow to this peripheral area to acquire a central and international status, converging into a sea of opportunities.

In this sense, the University of Algarve joins efforts with the region, combining history and tradition with contemporaneity.

The Academy is also recognized for the quality of its teaching in several fields, particularly in the areas of Science and Health Technologies; Economics, Management and Tourism; Social Sciences and Education; and Exact and Natural Sciences, standing out internationally in various rankings. More information about the rankings here.
