“The LSDM gives you the opportunity to attend your studies in the most suitable way, according to your lifestyle. From a distance it allows you to keep working or studying (as in my case), establishing yourself, the pace you need to do everything that’s necessary. If you have any doubts, your tutors will respond immediately in order to solve your problems. I’m very pleased with this, because my biggest fear was not being able to communicate with teachers if had any doubts. They always know how to help you.”
During my Professional Training and because it allowed me to study and take the course I wanted.
I could do it from a distance.
I was able to learn a lot about topics that didn’t know much about and they helped to put them into practice.

“Online courses are the future of world’s education. I believe so, and I work in the field of Education, plus the LSDM is taking the leading edge in this type of education in Portugal.”
International Officer at the University of Porto.
Marketing has always been quite interesting for me, I’ve even considered taking a bachelor’s degree in this area when I got into college, but I’ve decided to take International Relations instead, followed by a master’s degree in International Management.
But that “will” was always there, plus I believe higher education in this area is very important and complements any area of study. In this case, regarding my training and job, i.e. Internationalisation, a degree in Marketing makes all sense and it will certainly make me grow personally and professionally.
Online courses are the future of world’s education. I believe so, and I work in the field of Education, plus the LSDM is taking the leading edge in this type of education in Portugal.
I could never take another course while I’m working because most of the time, courses function at working hours. The fact of being entirely online is an enabler in this case. I can take my classes on the weekends, at the end of the day, in the morning, always according to my availability and will. I’m never stuck to a schedule and when I’m overwhelmed with work, I can always take classes at the end of the week.
The LSDM’s teaching method are quite practical as well. Unlike “regular” graduations, like the one I did, everything works with practical cases. In each class we have a self-assessment activity, and often a forum where we have to post the answer to an exercise. In almost every unit we have projects to present, based on practical cases where we apply the subject matter. This teaching and evaluation method, allow us to acquire the knowledge, as we are constantly reviewing and applying concepts.
The experience has been quite positive. Every week we have new lessons, self-assessments, discussion forums. We also have a tutor who is always available to help us with any questions and with our projects. I feel supported, despite doing things at my own pace due to this flexible schedule. Assessments (tests and assignments) are demanding because they are focused on the application of concepts, not on concepts themselves. That is, we have to know how to apply the learnings and I feel I’ve learned a lot from this kind of teaching.

“I decided to take a course at LSDM because I wanted to try my hand at foreign language education and get a new trendy profession.”
Sales manager, Marketing department.
I decided to take a course at LSDM because I wanted to try my hand at foreign language education and get a new trendy profession.
I have to travel a lot, and I do not have a chance to attend classes that is why an opportunity to study online works perfectly for me.
I love doing weekly assignments and sharing my thoughts and impressions about the lesson on the forum with other students and our tutors. I especially remember the implementation of the first projects at the beginning of the studies. Until that time, I had not had to study either abroad or online, so it was challenging for me, but with the help of tutors who are always in touch, I could do it.

“I believe LSDM was the best choice because (besides providing a high level of knowledge) we are free to study on own rhythm, according to our daily routine, without a timetable.”
After completing my course in Business Administration, I decided to try something that I loved, and since I had already taken my course in graphic design, I thought about starting a new one in this area. While I was searching for the ideal institution, I discovered the LSDM and saw it was the best option, both in terms of quality content and dynamics, for me to acquire the knowledge I needed to grow in the area of Design.
I believe LSDM was the best choice because (besides providing a high level of knowledge) we are free to study on own rhythm, according to our daily routine, without a timetable. Get in touch with people from different parts of the world. Having tutors always available to guide us and teach us. Plus, it’s also a course accredited by the UCA.
Taking my BA in Design at the LSDM has been a unique and innovative experience. I have never taken an online course, and I can say that it has exceeded all my expectations. I feel the dynamics of the classes, the activities, the interactivity through the forums, the proposed projects, the conferences with the tutors and colleagues, the way the content is made available, absolutely everything works well to provide a better educational achievement from classes, with motivation and enthusiasm.
I can say the project of the bio milk from the Azores has put a mark on me because thinking this project can improve the daily lives of people with motor and visual disabilities, made me experience the importance of design in society, and how much a professional design can change people’s quality of life.
Besides experiencing the theoretical and practical part of the course in a sound and effective way, I was also surprised by the tutors’ humanity, always willing to help me with a lot of attention and empathy. Despite some difficulties I was having to complete the projects, they motivated me and believed in my potential, which strengthened my studies and made me complete my work. This support, made me convicted that I have made the right choice when I decided to study at the LSDM.
Being developing myself professionally, strengthening my career in the area of design, through quality content and assisted by empathic professionals. It makes me feel confident in my professional and personal future.

“This course has been an interesting discovery that allowed me to explore new learnings and acquire important tools for the development of my work. It’s a very flexible course in which I can choose the best time for my training, without missing the level of demand required by a course of this kind. At the same time, it promotes the study and the autonomous learning, encouraging study and the deepening of certain thematics.”
I have training in Marketing and I’ve always considered Design a complementary area that could expand my knowledge.
The LSDM has offered me the chance to take a course exclusively online, allowing me to do my own schedule.
I was surprised by the course and the content. I had already done a course online but without the same level of learning provided by the LSDM.
The LSDM doesn’t only offer us content, it encourages us to learn, to explore and deepen our knowledge. Self-learning was always the best way to learn.
It’s a very practical course, for its nature makes us apply our knowledge.

“To study at the LSDM, allows me to learn anytime, anywhere. The experience and knowledge acquired is excellent due to the dynamics in the cultural diversity and systematic monitoring. Combining this new learning model with the flexibility and autonomy the LSDM provides, makes it possible to fulfill my career goals successfully.”
I’ve decided to take a course at the LSDM because throughout my professional career, marketing has turned out to be a necessity and I began to acquire practical knowledge. It would make all sense to further complement it with the theoretical and academic knowledge.
LSDM allows me to focus on my professional activities and gives me the flexibility to concentrate on my bachelor’s at my own rhythm and availability.
The level of learning I’ve been acquiring is unparalleled, because we can easily understand and assimilate the contents while applying them in everyday issues.

“Using online technologies, interacting at any time and anywhere, the LSDM allows its students to exchange experiences with students from other continents.”
I’m fascinated with marketing, management and planning. Besides being a personal goal, I seek a challenge for me to increase my knowledge and practice, develop new skills and competencies. Become a highly qualified marketing specialist endorsed by an international teaching institution.
The definition is EXTRAORDINARY. Using online technologies, interacting at any time and anywhere, the LSDM allows its students to exchange experiences with students from other continents by the use of forums, webinars with experts in the field, tutors’ support, the competition through the companies created by students.
The experience is unlike any other, the topics approached are discussed by students from other countries, students who share different realities. All that cultural diversity is shared online, resulting in a unique level of knowledge.

“My experience at LSDM was undoubtedly an opportunity to learn, grow and reinforce my knowledge in the area of design, something I would repeat without hesitating.”
In 2017 I decided to invest in my education, having chosen the LSDM because of the opportunity to participate in a new project, in a different context which could be adjusted to my availability.
A teacher has recommended it, the curricular units are of interest to me, besides being a practical course, in which I could apply the knowledge I acquired.
The MA in Design has allowed me to explore new areas of design which until then I didn’t have the chance, I have deepened areas of interest to me, having put into practice the learnings I have acquired in a real context.
A crucial part of my participation in the course was the application of design thinking methodologies applied to social contexts such as the Zika Virus project, where I investigated the context of the problem and created a visual solution for it.
As a Design professional I could dedicate myself to the creation of my visual identity and communication strategy, getting feedback from teachers and professionals in the field, and now putting it into practice in a real context.
The final project was something special for me. The opportunity to investigate and clarify what design is. Educate others and educate me in a visual way. A challenge that I have proposed to myself and that resulted into a project with the potential to be explored and expanded in different contexts.
My experience at LSDM was undoubtedly an opportunity to learn, grow and reinforce my knowledge in the area of design, something I would repeat without hesitating.
