The SMILE programme is a pilot programme launched by the MAGALHAES network and allows the exchange of students between the European Union and the Latin American and Caribbean countries, with academic recognition between Europe and Latin America and Caribbean.
Should your university of origin have a SMILE agreement with IST, you can carry out a period of studies of one semester or a academic year at IST.

How to apply?

The first few days
One week should be enough time to find something permanent. Check with the Mobility Office staff, on campus for assistance if you have not made any prior contacts before arriving in Lisbon. We recommend you stay in Youth Hostels for your first days, something temporary for while you look around. There are two Youth Hostels, both located in the Centre of Lisbon, providing excellent lodging conditions. The Lisbon Youth Hostel is quite close to IST.
