Joint and double degree programmes

Besides Erasmus Mundus, the University of Padova encourages other initiatives aimed at joint or double degrees and guarantees ad hoc scholarships for students participating in these programmes. Such international degree programmes are organised in cooperation with one or more foreign partner institutions. A mobility period at the partner university is envisaged before or after the course attendance at the University of Padova.

Upon completion of the international programme, students will obtain a double degree (two or more national degrees issued by the partner universities) or a joint degree (jointly issued by two or more of the partner universities), in compliance with the different national rules and the agreements signed between/among the partner institutions.
