Transferring to another Italian university

If you wish to transfer to another Italian university, you need to follow different steps.

Step 1: get informed on enrolment procedures applied to the degree programme of the university you wish to move to. You should also gather information on:

  • timeframe and deadlines within which the university you wish to move to accepts applications to transfer;
  • admission requirements, admission test or other selection criteria, where applied.

Step 2: check on Uniweb that all the examinations you sat have been recorded and all tuition fees due have been paid. In the case of tuition fees that have been paid, but have not been recorded yet, or tuition fees that have just been paid, you need to email a copy of the payment receipt to the Student Service Office at; remember to specify your student ID. In order to be considered for transfer admission, you must have paid all the tuition fees due up to the relevant academic year.
Step 3: Fill in the relevant form and hand it in at the Student Office’s help desk along with a revenue stamp of current value. You can also send the form by mail (the postmark date shall be proof of dispatch), but do not forget to also annex a copy of your ID card. Only application forms to transfer to other Italian universities can be accepted.

Please note: if you wish to benefit from income-based reduced fees and from advantages related to the right to education, please refer to the call for applications published by the relevant local agency for the right to university education. Before transferring, also remember that, in order to be entitled to income-based reduced fees, your academic career will be considered from the year when you first enrol at university, regardless of any recognition you may have obtained or the year of attendance you will be enrolled in. This may result in the loss of benefits following your transfer

Upon submitting your application, you will be emailed with the approval of the transfer; at this point, you must refer to the university to which you have just transferred in order to finalise your enrolment.
Once you have enrolled in the new university, you can transfer back to the University of Padua, if you wish, only in the academic year following your transfer. Before applying to transfer, you must submit your application for credits and previous educational activities recognition by the deadlines set for transfers from another university.
