Student Association

The AEFCT (Students Association of the Faculty of Science and Technology, Universidade Nova de Lisboa), was founded on November 8, 1979, with the scope of defending the rights and interests of FCT-UNL students.

This has been asserting itself as an association with a leading role, nationally as well as internationally, being today one of the most credible and respectable associations.

It was an integral part in several important phases of the associative movement contributing to an improvement, both in Portuguese and European higher education, as well as in the youth movement.

Organized in three governing bodies, the General Assembly, the Board, and the Fiscal Council, the AEFCT also has several nuclei and Autonomous Sections.
