Bilateral Agreements

Internationalisation has always been an important priority for the University of Padova. With over 300 bilateral agreements, the University has established long-standing relationships with Higher Education Institutions all over the world, not only in Europe but also in Africa, North and South America, Asia and the Middle East, aimed at encouraging international exchanges of teaching and administrative staff as well as students at all degree levels.

These bilateral agreements reflect various forms of cooperation, which also include activities such as joint publications and exchange of information, to improve academic cooperation.

Bilateral agreements are required for the students’ mobility to take place. Please check below the lists of bilateral agreements currently in place between the University of Padova and other HEIs.

Please note: if you are looking for information concerning the Erasmus Programme, you should refer to the page Erasmus+ for Studies.
