The Mobility and International Cooperation Office implements and manages the International Ambassadors programme at Técnico Lisboa, with the aim of creating a network of International Ambassadors who will collaborate in the dissemination and promotion of our institution with our partners, during and after their mobility period.
International Ambassador Mission
- Represent Técnico Lisboa during and after the mobility period;
- Advise potential international students about our programmes;
- Lead and facilitate activities to disseminate this School abroad;
- Talk about Portuguese culture and share what it’s like to study at Técnico and in Lisbon;
- Clarify doubts about the Técnico.
The International Ambassadors programme aims to promote Técnico in the institutions where students do their mobility or where they come from. This programme is for 3 types of students:
- the ones that will go on their mobility (outgoing students)
- the ones that already return from their mobility (former outgoing students)
- the ones that are here in their mobility and will return to their home institutions (incoming students)
This disclosure can be done either through socializing with colleagues, your social networks, fairs or other events that take place in these institutions.
Who are the International Ambassadors?
These ambassadors may be national students who will represent Técnico during and after their mobility or, on the other hand, foreign students who are undergoing a mobility period at Técnico, and who show interest in becoming our International Ambassadors, also acting as Técnico’s privileged interlocutors and promoters.

- If possible, joint presentation of students outgoing+incoming at the destination/host school;
- Leave contact details with potential students interested in coming to study at Técnico, so that we can make a connection with how many students came through that International Ambassador;
