 UMinho Electives

The creation of the UMinho Electives aims to promote the development of transversal knowledge, considered fundamental for the full training of students as people, citizens and professionals, thus contributing to the achievement of sustainable development goals.

UMinho Electives work on a semester basis, in the 1st or 2nd semesters, as per the course syllabus. Every year a variable number of courses is offered by different schools/institutes.

The enrolment in Option UMinho is held at the Academic Portal simultaneously with the registration process in the school year.

Enrolment period

Enrolment location

The selection of course units within the UMinho Electives is carried out simultaneously with the enrolment process in the academic year in question, and the vacancies for those course units are filled on a first come, first served basis. 
During the enrolment process, a course unit of the UMinho Electives must be selected within the list of course units with available vacancies at that moment. 
The course units within the UMinho Electives are offered in both campuses (Gualtar and Azurém) and they operate on a daytime regime and evening schedule.
In order to guarantee enrolment in the desired course unit, students should enrol in the academic year in question as soon as possible.

We remind you that the optional course units that do not have a minimum of 20 students enrolled do not meet the required conditions to operate. In these cases, the students will be later informed by email of such fact in order to change to another optional course unit.
