“The completion of the Masters gave me a deep and extensive knowledge of the multiple aspects
of Ocean Governance. It offers a coherent and broad academic program, which exceeded my
own expectations. The Masters provides effective answers to the increasingly complex challenges
of Ocean Governance. The scholarship program provides additional motivation for students to work hard and to achieve good results, in line with the standards of the NOVA School of Law.

During the second year of the Masters, I had the opportunity of taking part in an internship at the Directorate-General for Natural Resources and Maritime Services, where I had an active role in drafting of the Portugal’s Marine Spatial Plan. It was a very rewarding experience, both academically and personally, and undoubtedly an added value for my CV. Completing the Master was only the beginning. I am now even more determined to pursue studies in Marine Spatial Planning at NOVA School of Law.”
