The University of Padova


The University of Padova is one of Europe's oldest and most prestigious seats of learning; it is a multi-disciplinary university that aims to provide its students with both professional training and a solid cultural background. A qualification from the University of Padova is a symbol of having achieved an ambitious objective, one that is recognised and coveted by both students and employers alike.

The University of Padova offers its potential students 13 faculties, 91 first cycle degree courses, 78 second cycle degree courses, 8 single cycle degree courses, as well as a vast array of Postgraduate courses. Although Padova is the place where the vast majority of teaching takes place, a number of off-campus sites are located in the towns around Veneto.

Courses at the University of Padova are constantly updated in order to meet the ever-changing needs of the labour market. Its Healthcare degrees, for instance, cover a wide range of new courses such as Paedriatic Nursing (Medical School), or Neuroscience and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (Psychology). Its degrees also reflect today's need to safeguard both the environment with courses in Environmental Sciences and Technology (Agriculture Science), and consumers with Safety and Hygiene of Food Products (Veterinary Medicine). Furthermore, highly motivated University students may also apply for admission to the Galilean School of Higher Education. After a demanding selection process, each year 24 students are chosen to attend the School's high-level in-house courses and to use its special services.
