Olívia da Silva believes the School of Media Arts and Design was "a major challenge in the global repositioning of the Politecnico do Porto" and emphasizes how the school fullfilled about "98% of the initial positions" - "a great victory" since the transfer of audiovisual courses from Porto to Campus 2 did not cause a loss of candidates. The chairman of the founding committee of ESMAD advances that there is already "35 foreign students, most of them from Brazil." that school filled about "98% of the initial positions" - "a great victory" since the transfer of audiovisual Port courses for Campus 2 did not cause a loss of candidates.

"Having such a vast number of students who decided to choose our degrees is for us a source of great joy and satisfaction," says Flávio Ferreira. The goal of ESHT, which filled all vacancies available in the first phase is to use the good quantity and quality of new students. "With such good students, I'm sure we can do an excelent job so that they can give in the future a positive contribution to the development of tourism, catering and hospitality - areas increasingly important in the economy," he concludes.
