Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias (Lusophone University of Humanities and Technologies) is the largest Portuguese private university, and the main institution of Grupo Lusófona, which administers other universities and colleges in Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Angola, Guinea-Bissau and Mozambique. Indeed, promotion of Lusophony (the speaking of Portuguese) is seen as a major objective of the institution; students from former Portuguese African colonies pay substantially reduced fees.

History[edit]

The Universidade Lusofona started in 1987 in Lisbon and is the property of Grupo Lusófona a Portuguese private investor group geared at developing higher education institutions in Lusophone countries. Since then Universidade Lusófona has opened semi-autonomous offshoots in Porto, Luanda, Mindelo (2007).
