Call for foreign students, Galilean School of Higher Education, University of Padova

The Galilean School of Higher Education (SGSS) will offer up to 4 places reserved to foreign students (residing outside Italy), willing to enroll in any Master Program offered by the University.

The University of Padova is structured around the 3+2 Bologna system, and the present call is for the +2 (Master, in Italian Laurea Magistrale, LM) biennial cycle. Any program is eligible, from humanities to sociology to sciences.  

The official announcement is available on the web site of the School 

Applications must come between 23 March and 22 May 2017, in order to complete the selection by early June 2017. The selection will be based on records of previous University performance, recommendation letters and possibly an interview via skype. Applicants must hold a Bachelor degree (or obtain it before July 31, 2017) and not be older than 26 at the time of application. 

The privileges of foreign Galilean students are really appealing, from free lodging and meals, to a contribution to buy books and one return air ticket for each academic year. The Galilean School reserves the right to provide a further economic help up to 5.000,00 Euros for each student. Moreover, the students will enjoy dedicated courses and tutors. 

Several curricular programs in our University are entirely taught in English; (the academic year 2017/2018 updates are in progress). May be there are foreign student who would like courses in Italian, e.g. for History or Latin and Greek or Italian literature. The School will provide a dedicate course for learning Italian, which is useful anyhow to live in Padova for two years, and advice for other languages. In conclusion, the School is ready to help with the language issues to the satisfaction of the student.

We require very good and motivated students scoring among the top 5% (no votes below 24/30, minimum average 27/30, both in curricular and internal exams during the Master program). The students have to take both Master curricula at the University of Padova and internal courses at the Galilean School. Internal courses are offered in English.

After the Master biennial cycle, the University of Padova offers a good number of PhD Programs suitable for international students and aiming to the internationalisation of research and training in research.
