IPB can’t provide accommodation for Erasmus students in the students’ residences. Nevertheless, it is easy and inexpensive to arrange accommodation in Bragança and Mirandela. You can rent a single room with private bathroom for about 140 € per month. This value is often lower if you share a room or when several students decide to rent an apartment. After confirming the period of mobility, Erasmus students should immediately contact the International Office that will help you to obtain housing. IPB also cooperates with ESN (Erasmus Student Network), which plays a key role in the integration of Erasmus students and complements the service provided by the IRO.
- Arriving at IPB
Students should arrive to Bragança on time for the Opening Session. The Opening Session is organized in the morning of the first day of classes of each semester. During this session, students will be given all the important information about the steps that they need to take to be successful in their Erasmus mobility. Students presence on that session will be noted and then their Arrival Letters will be send to their home Institutions by email in order to receive the Erasmus grant.
