Summer and winter schools

Every year, in keeping with its policy of promoting internationalization, the University of Padova offers students the opportunity to attend Summer and Winter Schools organized in collaboration with academic institutions or other international organizations.
These are short, high quality courses designed for various types of users: researchers, PhD candidates, Italian/foreign post-graduate students, or public or private sector professionals and employees.
The courses carry training credits that will be recognized for overall study programmes and life-long education.Whilst International Summer and Winter Schools may differ widely one from another, certain common elements remain the same, such as the duration (intensive courses lasting 1-3 weeks, worth 2-6 ECTS credits) and a high proportion of internationally sourced teachers. Teaching staff and students reside on campus for the duration of the course, the working language is English, and there is scope for the organization of workshops, exercises, seminars, laboratory activities and visits.
Participants are selected according to the quality of their CV and on the basis of international representation and equal gender opportunities.
