Specialisation Schools

Scuole di specializzazione
These schools enable graduates to practice chosen professions and to use the title of specialista (specialist). Admission usually requires students to obtain a specific laurea magistrale or laurea magistrale a ciclo unico (or a comparable foreign degree) and to pass a selective examination. Course length varies in relation to subject fields. They are devised to provide students with knowledge and abilities required for highly qualified the professions (e.g., cardiology, oncology).

  How to apply

Applicants may be of any age or citizenship, but must have the requirements stated in the corresponding call for admission. After reading the call for admission, applicants must submit the application form on http://www.uniweb.unipd.it within the deadlines.
