The courses will be held on a rotating basis at each of the Portuguese participating universities. Students travel as a group throughout these institutions and live locally to attend the various courses.

Classes are taught in two-week blocks. Lectures and work assignments run on a full time bais (09:00-18:00), with some small variations between courses. Students attend lectures for mandatory courses in the fall term (1st Semester), and attend lectures for elective courses in January and February.

Depending on the choice of courses, the lecturing periods may not be continuous.
