It's time to flip the meaning of praxe

Hundreds of exemplary ideas!

Exarp is a movement that highlights exemplary initiatives for the integration of new students in higher education institutions. There are hundreds of ideas, many of them developed by the students themselves, which deserve to become public because of the consequences they have on people’s lives.

Exarp also encourages the creation of new initiatives focused mainly on the areas of sports, culture and science, through support in the communication and organization of events to the entities that wish so.

If you have ideas and need our help, just contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.

The moviment

Exarp is supported by the General Directory of Higher Education (DGES), in collaboration with Ciência Viva, but intends to extend to the whole society, from student associations and movements, through entities linked to sports, culture and science, to the participation of active citizens.

Everyone can participate with their ideas, proposals and actions and contribute to reinvent the integration of students in higher education institutions.

The symbol

All movements have a symbol. Ours, since we want everyone to participate, is a simple and accessible object: a scarf.

Any scarf, new or old, of one color or another and of any type of material, is perfect as an expression of support for this movement. However, we invited 10 artists to design the country and each one of them was responsible for creatively interpreting, in a scarf, a specific area. Curious?

The iniciatives

Throughout the school year, you can consult in this agenda the activities of culture, sports and science that take place in higher education institutions and sometimes even outside them. These are moments scattered throughout the country, from the coast to the interior, from the north to the south, from the continent to the islands of Azores and Madeira.

The latest news are highlighted here, but on the button below you can find out more about all the initiatives. If you want your initiatives to be part of this agenda, send us an email to
