Aveiro is most of all a city of students! So during the year you’ll have a lot of opportunities to enjoy the academic life and all kinds of old traditions.
You’ve probably wondered what is that funny Harry Potter costume Aveiro’s students wear so many times. It is called TRAJE, or particularly in Aveiro, Tertúlio.
This Praxe basically is a hazing ritual of integration carried out by older students for their respective course’s freshmen. And a Praxe can only be held by students who are wearing their academical suit, and are doing so correctly.
The academic weeks are the top weeks of the student’s year, taking place in Parque de Feiras e Exposições de Aveiro. During the Enterro week there are no classes! Instead, we have the concerts and every-day parties, and you can also participate in a lot of day activities such sports competitions, cards tournaments.
