International students

For centuries, the University of Padova, one of the oldest and most prestigious in Europe, has welcomed students from many foreign countries: those same people have made this city of art and industry essential for the development of thinking and science. Today, the University of Padova is open to the whole world, with more than 100 agreements with foreign institutions for higher education and participation in international networks, programmes and courses. Padova thus welcomes foreign students who wish to enrol in its courses or participate in international mobility programmes, with a series of personalised services such as Italian courses for foreigners, healthcare , and many sports activities. All this within just one city, Padova, with its extensive artistic heritage, only a short distance from Venice and its marvels, and surrounded by landscapes and cities among the finest in Europe.
