Portugal is a spacious and cosy country with an incredibly fabulous landscape and architectural heritage. This is what Ivan Zelenyy, a third-year student of the Faculty of Applied Informatics, and Denis Bilichenko, a second-year student of the Faculty of Business Administration, saw when they came to Portugal. As part of a cooperation agreement with the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, the guys went to study on an exchange programme. They are the ones who, despite all the difficulties, did not give up and ended up in this country.

The guys settled in a town called Bragança. Their educational institution, Polytechnic Institute, is also located here. According to their programmes, they will study informatics and management for six months. Lessons are taught intensively in English. The best teachers give subject knowledge and share their experience.

In the short time that Ivan and Denis spent in Bragança, they were able to visit the historic centre and enjoy a stunning view of the surrounding area. The erected fortress and the museum located in the main tower raised the curtain of historical events for the guys.

We wish the boys success in their studies and cultural familiarization with the country!
