Situated within the Catholic University of Portugal, the School of Arts is based in Porto and offers different degrees in arts education. Its two main areas are film & new media art and conservation and restoration. The school presents itself as an art school, focusing on the development of artists with technological knowledge but also with a humanistic education, fostering future directors and visual artists that can think through the world around us. The School of Arts is one of the main film schools in Portugal. With over 500 students in its Sound and Image Department (across BA, MA and PhD studies), it offers a wide range of curricular options for aspiring filmmakers.

At the moment, the school has an intensive cultural program, with artists-in-residence (in 2018, it was the internationally renowned filmmaker Salomé Lamas; this year the artists Nuno da Luz and Ana Vaz), a cycle of conferences with special guests (artists, filmmakers, scholars), and a periodic calendar of exhibitions at the School’s exhibition space (since 2018, the school has presented exhibitions by Francisco Tropa, João Paulo Serafim, Salomé Lamas, Mariana Caló & Francisco Queimadela; upcoming exhibitions by Nuno da Luz, Jonathan Saldanha and Ana Vaz).
