Independent from the University of Lisbon (ULisboa), the Student Ombudsman is a body that focuses mainly on the defense and protection of the students’ rights and interests within the University.
The Student Ombudsman is appointed by the General Council, on a proposal of the Rector, for four year periods, after an opinion by the Senate’s Standing Committee for Pedagogical and Student Affairs.
1 – It is the Obudsman’s duty to consider students’ complaints on pedagogical issues and connected administrative matters, as well as on other aspects of their academic lives, and to issue the adequate recommendations for the prevention and solution of the verified situations to the competent bodies of the University.
2 – The Ombudsman’s activities are carried out in conjunction with the Schools’ pedagogical councils, the Student Support Services and the Students’ Unions, according to the regulated terms.
