A set of international education programmes and qualifications with a four-stage pathway from primary to secondary education.
Dual Certification – Cambridge International
The double certification, obtained through Cambridge Assessment International Education, is internationally recognised as a certification based on solid programmes, taught using innovative methods which constitute the path to learning in line with the challenges of the new era of globalisation and internationalisation of education. Students obtain National Curriculum Certification and Cambridge International Certification, which will provide them with valuable international references.
The double certification course aim to provide students with high quality training that will enable them to apply to both national and foreign universities, increasing their chances of success in their future careers. Dual Certification provides a certification that is differentiated from the national certification, which allows the student to finish their studies with two certifications: that of the Portuguese Ministry of Education and that of Cambridge Assessment International Education.

“International General Certificate of Secondary Education” (IGCSE) is a two-year programme culminating in an exam, assessed and certified by Cambridge University examiners. With this certificate, students will be recognised all over the world.
