Portugal has a high the concentration of students in short-cycle programmes in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and engineering.

The success of short-cycle programmes as pathways to further study will require a combined approach of improved study guidance and student support. The country note reviews the system context, highlights challenges faced by higher education institutions and, lessons learned from current practice, and presents policy options.
