School of Hospitality and Tourism


As a centre of excellence in teaching and research, the School of Hospitality and Tourism is placed at the top of mind of the market, providing a sustainable and innovative training model.


We develop selected strategies, not only for teaching and research but also for services provision, relationship with the community, establishing networks and partnerships and internationalisation.

Located in the modern Campus 2 of Povoa de Varzim / Vila do Conde, the ESHT guarantees the best infrastructures such as kitchen and restaurant labs, including a pedagogical hands-on restaurant and show-cooking kitchen, housing laboratories, library, auditorium and recreational areas and student support.

We meet the current demands of a growing sector with "five-stars" quality.

We deliver solutions to the high demand for highly-qualified human resources, capable of undertaking more complex functions, ensuring service quality and differentiation in businesses operating in the area of Tourism, Hotel and Restaurant.

Protocols signed with other hotels provide strong career opportunities and high levels of employability. We promote Hospitality courses in a real context, as demonstrated by the Porto School Hotel located in the first five-star School Hotel in Portugal.
