Rapid Testing Programme

Excluding any changes that may be necessary depending on the evolution of the pandemic situation, we will not resume the rapid testing programme at the Faculty of Sciences at the opening of the 2021/22 school year. During may, the testing programme will continue at the University of Lisbon Medical Centre, as follows:

  • Medical Centre at University Campus: 5, 12, 19 and 26 , between 9:30am and 12:30am. Rapid antigen tests will be performed;

Will be maintained the possibility of repeating the sample for PCR testing, at the premises of the Faculty of Pharmacy, in case of positive results in the rapid tests.

Registration for testing in these centres is done by sending an e-mail 48 hours in advance to covid19@ciencias.ulisboa.pt:

  • Indication of case and type of connection
  • Full name
  • Category
  • Employee/student number
  • Institutional e-mail
  • Mobile phone number
  • Birth date
  • National Health Service user number (or, in the case of foreign citizens, identification document number)

Test scheduling is only possible after sending all the stated information.


Digital test certificate

The digital test certificate for the tests carried out at the Medical Centre can be obtained on the SNS24 page - COVID Digital Certificate.

However, it is important to clarify the procedure used, namely:

  1. The data of the tests carried out daily at Ciências is sent to the National System of Epidemiological Surveillance (SINAVE) by the Rectory services, from 8 pm of the same day.  The sending of results to users by e-mail does not automatically lead to their submission to SINAVE.
  2. In addition, there is a time interval between sending the data and the possibility of obtaining the certificate, related to updates between systems;
  3. Therefore, it should be considered that the test certificate is only available from 8:00 am on the day following the test.
