Hi there! I’m from Austria, I’m 24 years old and I have a degree in Linguistics. I want to change my life around and become a carpenter, however I have no experience so it’s difficult for me to find an apprenticeship in Austria and we don’t have any university courses in the country that offer carpentry or joinery.
I wanted to ask of there are any (English language) university or polytechnical programmes that teach you carpentry or joinery in Portugal, starting from a basic level (I’d also be prepared to learn Portuguese). And if not, what is the process of entering a new profession, such as carpentry, in Portugal? Would it be possible to apply for an apprenticeship being an international EU resident?
Any advice is really appreciated!
