Professional and Continuing Education

About a thousand post-graduates enrol at the University of Padova every year to follow short specialization degree courses. These courses attract top scientific professionals and specialists from the fields of research, business and the public institutions. Most courses are specially designed to suit professional needs and requirements and concentrate on the development of specific skills and abilities.
At the University of Padova, these courses are characterised by openness to contributions from outside the academic world. Academic teaching is therefore integrated by field placements to enable students to apply and test their acquired skills.
