I’m a second year nursing student and I stayed in Porto for three months and did two different practical trainings in here. It was a very interesting experience because the school system is different in here, so there is a lot to compare and learn. The local students are very friendly and helpful, they don’t mind explaining how everything works in here. It has been a lot of help to have support from them, from daily life to dealing with different teachers.
The city itself is very nice and easy to get to know. The center area is rather small and it is impossible to get lost. In the free time there is plenty to do, from enjoying a quick cup of espresso to going to see a good game of football in the weekends (there are two notable football teams in here). Also the connection between other cities is very nice and taking the train is rather cheap for the students.
Casa da Musica and the city hall.
Boavista F.C. and FC Porto
Ocean and Castelo do Quejio
Ferreira ‘vinho do Porto’ wine cellar and the famous Ponte de dom Luís I
There is a lot more to see and wonder about in Porto and it surely is worth a visit! And specially because Portuguese people are very open minded and guest friendly!
