Even in these troubled times, the desire to study abroad has not faded: having a high-quality education is crucial for those who will look for employment in a world that will need to recover as fast as possible from an unprecedented crisis.

Among all possible study destinations, Italy has a lot to offer: world-class though affordable public Universities in an astonishing country, where natural beauties blend with a millenary cultural heritage and thriving, innovative businesses. Not to mention, of course, the world-famous culinary temptations and the pleasant Italian lifestyle that may easily conquer even the most skeptical of you.

Every year, over 1,500 international students choose the University of Padua – one of the oldest and most prestigious Italian universities, ranked among the top 200 in the world – for their studies.

Located in the northern east part of Italy, Padua is a charming, welcoming, student-friendly city where anyone can feel at ease. Students account for over 30% of local population, that’s why you can meet students literally anywhere in Padua!

Over the last eight centuries, the city and the University have been growing together, and nowadays they are deeply intertwined, to the extent that Padua is sometimes referred to as the ‘Univer-city’: the University’s thirty-two Departments and various facilities are in fact spread all over the city, creating a fascinating urban design.

You will have over 180 degree programmes to choose from, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, covering all the fields of human knowledge: Engineering, Agricultural Sciences, Economics, Humanities, Medicine, Biotechnologies, Law… and interconnections among the different disciplines create a stimulating and unique learning environment, where research plays a massive role.

Funding your studies in Padua will be no problem, since there are plenty of scholarship and fee-waiver opportunities for international students. The Housing Office will help you finding suitable accommodation and the Welcome Unit will support you when you are new in town, organising dedicated welcome initiatives and putting you in contact with your Buddy, a senior University student who will help you settle in during your first (and probably toughest!) weeks in Padua.

Above all, studying in Padua will be a life-changing opportunity, where you will join a large and vibrant international community of staff, students and alumni. No surprise that 90% of students are highly satisfied with their academic experience at the University of Padua!

Still doubtful? Listen to some students sharing their experience at the University of Padua…“You will never regret it”!
