ISPA – Instituto Universitário de Ciências Psicológicas, Sociais e da Vida, Portugal

The University

Starting its activities in 1962 as the Instituto de Ciências Pedagógicas, the name Instituto Superior de Psicologia Aplicada (ISPA) was adopted in 1964. Since then, ISPA was established as an essential reference in higher education in Portugal.

A pioneer in teaching and research in psychological and behavioral sciences, ISPA is nationally and internationally recognized for the excellence of its scientific and cultural pedagogical project, the quality of its scientific activity and the relevance of its university extension activities.

The university extension and knowledge transfer activities were always a distinctive dimension of ISPA. In this area we highlight the various consulting services to national and international organizations (public and private) provided by its faculty and the university extension structures such as the Center of Psychological Assessment, the Center for Child and Family Support or the University Clinic of Psychology.

Being one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Portugal, ISPA has helped to raise standards and to promote the multicultural and universalist vocation of higher education respecting the values that have distinguished the best universities.
