Assessment Tests for Over 23s - 2024/2025

The Decree-Law 64/2006The Law on Access to Higher Education, of March 21, which approves the special conditions for access and admission to higher education for those over 23 years of age, covers candidates over 23 years of age, regardless of the academic qualifications they hold, as long as they do not hold the access qualification.

An access qualification should be understood as being the holder of a secondary education course or a legally equivalent qualification and having taken the test of ability to attend higher education, which is achieved by passing the entrance exams (the 12th grade or equivalent alone cannot be considered an access qualification to higher education).

Access conditions:

You must be 23 years old by December 31st of the year prior to the exams;
Do not have a specific access qualification (a "specific access qualification" is understood to mean students who have passed the subjects required for access to ISEG degrees in the national higher education entrance exams).
