Academic activities

Academic activities are extracurricular events open to the whole academic community. In addition to organising workshops, lectures and conferences, our institution organises the following types of activities: cultural, sports, educations, cooperative and leisure.

By participating in these activities, students gain a broader view of the world, enriching their education and making them standout as better professionals.

Student centres and associations

The institution’s Student Associations and centres are a way of integrating the students and to get them to know each other, for them to learn and develop extracurricular skills.

The centres are groups created by the students themselves, with the intention of offering a more dynamic and unstructured academic experience.

Base IPAM is a Junior Enterprise certified by Junior Enterprises Portugal, which is an offshoot of IPAM. It is the only junior enterprise exclusively focused on and specialising in marketing management consulting.

Created with the intention of promoting and developing young talent in marketing, Base is a group of students with similar objectives and dynamics that, together with the support provided by a know-how network, develop their skills and competencies daily, by learning and applying them to real consulting projects. IPAM Base members have the opportunity to experience life in a professional work environment and thereby, define and forge their own career path, through joining Departments and project teams.

We seek students who consider problems to be an opportunity to learn and grow, to be proactive, dynamic, creative and above all, that have the critical thinking and willingness to do and become more.

For more than 20 years it conveys happiness and the academic spirit through its very noble institution.

The Tuna Académica’s [Music Group] history at IPAM Porto has been characterised by its conduct, which focuses on two major aspects: academism/tradition and music. Since its creation, it has always sought to join music and academia in a harmonious way, attempting to find equilibrium between both.

Its history:

It was created on 23 March 1998 and in 2009 it was granted legal statute, becoming a non-profit association.

It started off with performances for its institution and in bars and restaurants. With time and the natural resulting musical growth, its performances were extended to concerts and music festivals.

After 5 years Tuna, in commemoration of this anniversary, organised its first music festival, or FITAM.

Generally speaking, the Tuna Académica at IPAM Porto grew organically, but never lost its originality: “High morale and a full glass!”. With 18 years of history, the IPAM Tuna Académica is proud to have participated in various concerts and Music festivals throughout the country where, in addition to sharing its characteristic warmth and happiness, it also earned various distinctions and awards.

There are many memories and many performances made by the Tuna, be it at concerts or music festivals... Always with the objective of dignifying and promoting IPAM and the city. Whether it is in a bar, one of the country’s music venues, in front of crowds... or just for one beautiful woman.

DOLPHITUNA – Female Music Group of IPAM Porto that was born for music.

If you want to live the academic life to its fullest, come and meet Dolphituna. Because you know that everything is better when friends and music come together!

Its history:

DOLPHITUNA was created on 30 October 2001. The initial idea started with a group of friends and university students that liked music and with a natural musical ability, but mainly, it came from the desire to add rhythm to their academic lives.

With a feeling of gratitude, we highlight the support and contribution that our godfathers TAIPAM (Tuna Academy of IPAM Porto | Male) and our godmothers Desatuna (Female Tuna of ESAD-College of Art and Design) provided and continue to provide to the growth of Dolphituna.

With more than 20 years of history, we shined in all of the festivals, performances and social activities that we had the opportunity to participate in and organise. This, always with the objective of giving a contribution to the Academy that accepts us in the name of the home where we were born, IPAM.

Unity, enthusiasm, happiness and charisma, aren’t lacking in this tuna that never refuses “just one more round”.
