Enrolments increase by 12.2%
Enrolments are increasing at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice: first year enrolments for the 2015-2016 academic year have come in at 6,814, of which 4,653 undergraduate and 2,719 graduate, showing an increase of 11% and 15%, respectively, with respect to the previous year.
There will be a total increase of 743 newly enrolled students in Ca’ Foscari’s classrooms between the 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 academic years, showing an overall increase of 12.2%.
Amongst undergraduate enrolments, excellent numbers were reached for the new degree in Philosophy, International Studies and Economics, taught entirely in English within the School for International Relations. Economics and Management, the English-taught curriculum within the limited admission Bachelor's degree in Economics and Management, also showed great results, filling all available places.
Ca’ Foscari boasts 46 degrees this year – 16 undergraduate and 30 graduate – spanning all four of its major subject areas, economics, languages, humanities and science. In addition, student fees have now been “capped”, that is, they have not increased, for the sixth year in a row.
Ca’ Foscari Rector, Michele Bugliesi: “This is a result which provides us with great satisfaction. Enrolments have increased across all major disciplines, showing particularly strong success, and an ever-increasing request for degree programmes in English. The undergraduate degree in Philosophy, International Studies and Economics has debuted with outstanding results, and all places available in the Economics and Management curriculum have been filled. We are extremely pleased with these results as they recognise Ca’ Foscari’s commitment to investing in first-rate modern teaching that attentively meets the requests for expertise and professional profiles which are becoming increasingly specialised, yet increasingly flexible at the same time, by providing sound technical skills in addition to those which are versatile and transferable”.
