    Students associations

    After an academic year in which NOVA IMS has undergone a profound change in its syllabus, the Students Union has taken part, to the best of its knowledge, in the implementation of the Bologna Treaty. Aimed at helping students through this important change for the Institute, this collaboration was fructiferous for students as well as for the group that created and implemented the Bologna Treaty in NOVA IMS . This Association will continue its cooperation with the various students and the Institute itself, being this the main focus of the students.
