The University of Padua promotes student mobility towards non-European Countries within mobility agreements signed with selected Universities. The new Ulisse Programme enables students to spend a study, a thesis research or an internship period abroad at partner Universities from 4 different continents (Europe, Americas, Asia, Australia).

The recognition of the activities carried out abroad is ensured by the Learning Agreement. You must sign the Learning Agreement before your departure and keep it up-to-date during your mobility period.

Successful students can either ask for an individual appointment or take part in the general meeting held in Italian in Aula didattica, Palazzo Storione, on Monday 24th February 2.30pm.

  How to apply

To be eligible for Ulisse Programme you must be enrolled at the University of Padua in a Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, Single-cycle degree programmes or in a PhD research doctorate for the a.y. 2019/2020.

If you are enrolled at least in the second year of a Bachelor's degree programme or of a single-cycle degree programme, you must have accumulated at least 40 ECTS credits.
