Double and Joint degree programmes

The University of Padua promotes joint or double degree programmes and guarantees ad hoc scholarships for participating students. Such international degree programmes are organised in cooperation with one or more partner institutions. A mobility period at the partner university is envisaged before or after attending a degree programme at the University of Padua.

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 by the partner institutions.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal in partnership with the University of Padua, please contact international.projects@unipd.it.

  Transfor-M: TRANSatlantic FORestry Master

TRANSFOR-M is a 2-year course-based Master program leading to double degrees in forestry and environmental management. It was originally funded under the Transatlantic Degree Partnership (TDP) Program by the European Commission and the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) from 2010 to 2014; this project was a follow-up of the highly successful EU and HRSDC funded TRANSFOR project (2005-2008). TRANSFOR-M student exchange continues without funding by EC and HRSDC.

TRANSFOR-M students are educated in modern sustainable forestry and environmental management approaches that are sensitive to cultural and situational differences. They acquire an enhanced global view that accommodates multi-cultural perspectives about environmental, economic and cultural issues.

Students may choose from a number of both thesis-based or course-based Master's programs of the participating departments and faculties. Each student will spend one year in Canada and one year in Europe in an English-language Master program.

Students will pay to their home institution full tuition fees and all other mandatory and required fees associated with full-time registration in the graduate program to which they have been admitted at the home institution during their exchange. When studying at the partner institution students will pay no application or tuition fees at the host university (except, if required, other mandatory fees).
