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. The initiative is designed to provide early support for short-term intensive courses of high quality, targeted at different types of users: both Italian and foreign researchers, doctoral students, post-graduate students or professionals and public or private employees.

At least 30% of the lecturers must come from foreign Institutions and the use of a foreign language (different from Italian) as language of instruction is compulsory. 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.

The University of Padova is currently working on the 2018-2019 Summer and Winter Schools programme. The list below will be updated accordingly.
