Boston University Study Abroad Padua

Since its start in 1988, Boston University students and students from colleges and universities around the States have had the opportunity to study a variety of disciplines at the Boston University Padua Academic Center and at the University of Padua and be exposed to an array of cultural and recreational events in a vibrant university town.

Students who are already proficient in Italian have the option to take courses in any discipline in one of the oldest universities in the world, made famous by renowned scientists such as Galileo Galilei and Copernicus.

Students with no previous knowledge of Italian can enroll in the BU Padua Italian and European Studies Program which includes the opportunity to take courses in English at the local university as well.

All students enrolled in the Boston University Study Abroad Padua live with Italian host families which provide an excellent opportunity to explore Italy and the Italian lifestyle in depth.
