The Programs offered by the University of Padova are normally based on the 3+2 Bologna system:

- a 3-years first cycle, in Italian Laurea Triennale LT

- a 2-years second cycle, in Italian Laurea Magistrale LM

Some Programs, called  “Single Cycle Degrees” (in Italian Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico), don’t follow the 3+2 division, but they last directly 5 or 6 years. The Galilean School can admit students, either enrolling at the first year of a Laurea Triennale, or at the first year of a Laurea Magistrale a ciclo unico.

The Academic Year starts on October 1st. After enrolling in a Program of their choice (for details, see the enrolment procedures at http://www.unipd.it/en/how-apply), Galilean students (Galileiani) must pass the relevant exams at the required dates, with scores not less than 24/30 in any single exam and an average score not less than 27/30. In addition, they must attend the internal courses and seminars given by the Galilean School and pass the relevant exams with the same scores as above. They will share their experience and ideas with the other Galileiani, and will adhere to the disciplinary rules of the College where they are hosted. Within one year after obtaining their Master degree, they will write an additional, final Galilean thesis, under the supervision of an advisor of their choice but approved by the School, on a subject different from that of the Master thesis. Following the successful defense of the Galilean thesis, the student will receive a Galilean Diploma.

Galileiani share a community life at Collegio Morgagni (located in Via San Massimo, n. 33 – Padova); the college provides an auditorium, classrooms, a library, two rooms for music, a fitness room and several common areas.

Galilean students are provided with free accommodation at "Cittadella dello Studente", quite near to Collegio Morgani. Accommodation is compulsory all year long, except during the national holiday periods contemplated by the Academic Calendar.

At the end of each academic year, if not complying with the above requirements and regulations, students will lose their status of Galileiani and the associated privileges, but will be allowed to continue their regular Program at the University of Padova if their wish, at their own expenses.
