Dear Colleagues,

I would like to introduce you ETIC Incoming, a department part of a group of 3 schools based in Lisbon (Portugal), specialised in the organization and management of work experience, exchange projects, technical training, Portuguese language training, funded by the European Commission 'Lifelong Learning Programme'.

ETIC – Technical School of Image and Communication is our technical school and provides 1- or 2-year courses, recognised by the Ministry of Labour.
These courses aim at providing or enlarging technical expertise and students, most of them already working in the chosen area, are required to have accomplished secondary education.

EPI – Professional School of Image is our professional school, and provides 3-year courses, fully recognised by the Ministry of Education and corresponding to secondary education.
After having successfully accomplished the course, students may choose either to take in a high degree in a University or begin their professional (technical) career.
