29 29 International Student Perspectives University of Padova Regular student He is fully enrolled in the 2years Master of Science Programme and he will receive the MSc Degree from the University of Padova. Fellowships are available, following a selection procedure. Erasmus exchange student He is regularly enrolled in an EU University. He spends one Semester (or More) at the University of Padova. The exams are recognized from the home University. He will receive MSc Degree only from his home University. Fellowships are provided by EU. Bilateral exchange student He is enrolled in a non EU University having with UNIPD a bilateral agreement for students exchange. Similar to the Erasmus exchange programme. No fellowship is so far available from the Italian side. Double Degree student He is enrolled in a University having a Double Degree Agreement with UNIPD. In general he spends 60 credits (ECTS) in the host University and 60 in the home University. He receives MSc Degree from both the Universities
