Master’s Degree – 2nd study cycle

You may apply for a Master’s or an integrated master’s (2nd study cycle) under the following conditions:

  • If you have completed an undergraduate or an integrated masters (1st study cycle) at Instituto Superior Técnico, even though with no scientific consistency with the course of the 2nd study cycle that you wish to apply to;
  • Hold an undergraduate degree (1st study cycle) in the field of Science and Technology (except in the case of the 2nd study cycle in Architecture which requires a 1st study cycle programme in Architecture);
  • Hold either an academic, scientific or professional curriculum verifying the capability to complete the master’s programme you are applying to.

Following the transition to the new teaching model for the 2021/22 school year, students who have finished an undergradute programme at Técnico within the periods defined in the Regulation for Admission to Masters Programmes, article 1, for which the Masters degree they are applying for is considered a continuation course, have direct access to that Masters. (complete documentation available at the bottom of this page).
