During its eight centuries of history, students, researchers and alumni have provided key contributions to the advancement of knowledge, science and society: Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo Galilei are among the fathers of modern science, Andreas Vesalius and William Harvey founded modern Medicine, and Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia became the world’s first woman to graduate in 1678.

The University of Padua is today a TOP 250 university in the world, providing a solid academic background and excellent training and ensuring that graduates can brilliantly succeed in their professions. It has also been recognised as the best university in Italy for teaching and research quality by the Agency of the Italian Ministry of University and Research in charge of assessing university performance. Academic staff develop ground-breaking research tackling global challenges and supporting the advancement of knowledge, science and society.

The University of Padua is a multidisciplinary institution with 8 Schools and 32 Departments, offering a broad and comprehensive portfolio of programmes (30 of which are taught completely in English), ranging from Engineering to Business and Political Sciences, from Medicine to Humanities, from Psychology to Agriculture, from Law to Science.
