Does U-Map include the Curso de Especialização Tecnológica (CET)?
The Curso de Especialização Tecnológica (CET)are to be excluded given that they are classified as ISCED 4, the CET programs are post-secondary education, and differ from higher education. This applies to both in the graduate numbers, as well as the number of students enrolled, and other data that are related to CETs (e.g. the financial sections, staff). The CETs are also excluded in the prefilled information on students we received from MCTES.
What is the deadline for submission of the data?
The deadline for the Portuguese U-Map project is 15 June 2011.
What is a region in Portugal?
For U-Map we suggest to use the NUTS2 regions. Please also see the Glossary. Portugal has 7 regions according to the NUTS classification (Norte, Algarve, Centro, Lisboa, Alentejo, Acores, Madeira). If a HEI is situated in more than one region, its students from the region can originate from more than one NUTS2 region.
What is the default reference year for U-Map in Portugal?
For Portugal we will use 2009 as the default reference year (calendar year 2009 and academic year 2009-2010).
