IBDP and Portuguese Universities
The IBDP Diploma Programme is equivalent to the ‘12º ano’ of the Portuguese education system, granted by the Decreto-Lei 227/2005, artº 3. The conversion of IBDP grades to thePortuguese system is established in Portaria 433/2005. Only the IB Diploma is accepted.

The IBDP final examinations are recognised as equal to the Portuguese national examinations, used as entrance examinations (Provas de Ingresso), by a large number of Portuguese Universities (application of artº 20, Decreto-Lei 296-A/98, annually revised by a deliberation of the Comissão Nacional de Acesso ao Ensino Superior (CNAES) – last deliberation: Deliberação nº 794/ 2012). Students who are applying to Portuguese Universities, when choosing their HL/ SL IBDP subjects, should bear in mind the list of Institutions/Provas de Ingresso in CNAES’ deliberation, as each individual Faculty determines the level required for each subject. Form 10, 11 and 12 pupils receive careers and universities advice and guidance from their tutors and in tutorial sessions.

Advice and guidance is given to pupils to support them in their applications to universities around the world most predominantly in the UK, Portugal and the USA.
