NOVA University Lisbon filled all the places it had available in this year's National Access to Higher Education Competition. NOVA was one of the only two universities in the country where this happened. The placement rate was 101,1%, which is due to a tie between candidates.
Of the total number of candidates for higher education in Portugal, 4,869 have placed the courses of NOVA as their first option.
NOVA leads the vacancies at a national level in 14 courses, considering the average of the last student placed. This means that, in these 14 courses, the placement grades at NOVA are the highest in the country, which shows the preference for NOVA’s offers.
The courses in which NOVA leads are Molecular and Cellular Biology, Conservation-Restoration, Geological Engineering, Applied Chemistry (all from FCT NOVA), Political Science and International Relations, Communication Sciences, Language Sciences, Music Sciences, Philosophy, History, Translation (all from NOVA FCSH), Economics (Nova SBE), Information Management and Information Systems and Technologies (both from NOVA IMS). In other words, NOVA leads, at a national level, in 35% of its teaching offer.
At the level of Lisbon HEIs, NOVA leads in Biochemistry, Civil Engineering, Mathematics (FCT NOVA), Archaeology, Languages, Literature and Cultures (NOVA FCSH), Management (Nova SBE), Medicine (NOVA Medical School), Law (NOVA School of Law) and Data Sciences (NOVA IMS).
"These results show the excellence and prestige of all teaching units of NOVA, which, without exception, occupied all the vacancies presented to the competition", considers the Rector of NOVA. João Sàágua adds: "All our Schools are to be congratulated for the excellent work developed, whose recognition is in the results achieved. I wish all the best to the new 2860 students who are now part of the NOVA community".
