Historical Note
The Portuguese university has very ancient origins who join in the request addressed to Pope Nicholas IV, dated 1288, the creation of a general study, in Lisbon. The headquarters of the University until 1537 and changed in this time interval was in Lisbon or Coimbra, until, in 1537, was transferred permanently to the latter city, where he remained a unique institution in the country. It was only in the century. Century that, in the capital, were reappearing higher studies: theMedical-Surgical School of Lisbon (1836), the School of Pharmacy (1836), the Polytechnic School (1837) and the Degree of Letters (1859).

These were four schools that the Constitution University April 19, 1911 sent to gather together at the University of Lisbon (created by decree of March 22, 1911), changing their names to the ones we all know them today. Later, there were changes in these colleges and annexations of more research and education institutions. This is the case of the Bacteriological Institute Câmara Pestana, the Geophysical Institute Infante D. Luiz, the Institute of Career Guidance, the National Museum of Natural History (encompassing the BocageMuseum, Museum and Botanical Gardens and Geological and MineralogicalMuseum) and the Museum of Science.

Queen's University (Canada)

Queen's is one of Canada's leading universities, with an international reputation for scholarship, research, social purpose, and spirit. Consistently highly-ranked, Queen's is known for its incomparable 24-hour learning environment. Great teaching, great students, community and tradition - these are the hallmarks of the Queen's experience.


The University was established by Royal Charter of Queen Victoria in 1841 - twenty-six years before Canadian confederation. Classes were first held in 1842. The earliest degree-granting institution in the united Province of Canada, and the first to establish a student government, Queen's has reflected and helped shape Canadian values and policies, educating many of the country's most notable political and cultural figures.

Students & Faculty

Queen's student body represents 83 different countries, along with every Canadian province and territory. Our faculty is drawn from some of the most prestigious institutions in the world, and Queen's faculty members regularly receive international recognition and numerous teaching awards for their research and innovative contributions.


Graduates of Queen's become part of a living, legendary tradition. Queen's graduates can be found in boardrooms, courtrooms, hospitals, art galleries, laboratories, libraries, and governments around the world.

Community & Kingston

Queen's University is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, a quintessential university community big enough to provide all the conveniences of modern life, but small enough for students, staff and faculty to feel instantly comfortable and at home. For more than a century-and-a-half, the stories of Queen's and Kingston have been inextricably entwined. Kingston is Canada's 3rd best "place to live" in Canada according to a 2009 Canadian Businesspublication survey.

Hope u like this information. Probably one of u that visit my blog will enter Queen's in Canada :D If u join this great academy leave a report here pls. I would like to know things like academic spirit, learning methods and things like that.

And now i can tell some interesting things about this university.

A reputation for excellence

The University of New England was the first Australian university established outside a capital city. With a history extending back to the 1920s, UNE has a well-earned reputation as one of Australia's great teaching, training and research universities. Its graduates consistently rate their experience at UNE highly, a reflection of the University's commitment to student support. More than 75,000 people now hold UNE qualifications, with many in senior positions in Australia and overseas. UNE has built up its academic profile to the point where it now has more than 500 PhD candidates, an important sign of the University's academic vigour and rigour.

Research excellence

UNE is internationally recognised as one of the great teaching and research universities. The university undertakes fundamental and applied research in many disciplines. Its scholars and scientists have established international reputations through their contributions in areas such as rural science, agricultural economics, educational administration, linguistics and archaeology. Collaborative research with other institutions includes projects with the CSIRO and the high profile Cooperative Research Centres. Through its research UNE assists in the economic, social and cultural advancement of Australia and in the advanced training of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Learning on campus

The majority of first-year, on-campus students choose to live in on campus residences, within easy walking distance of lectures and tutorials. In addition to providing food and lodgings, the colleges offer organised social activities as well as academic and pastoral support networks. The University prides itself that students from more than 50 nations study on-campus, providing a cosmopolitan atmosphere. The campus is well equipped with its own child-care, medical facilities, a post office, credit union, shops and restaurant, as well as the full range of sporting facilities. A regular bus service links the campus to town.
