Cultural Programme

Programma Culturale

The International College is a prominent cultural centre in the area thanks to its interaction with Ca’ Foscari University, and with international research networks. The workshops and lectures are held by Faculty from Ca’ Foscari and from other University partners, as well as by renown experts from all parts of the world.

Its multidisciplinary approach to education is a distinguishing feature of the College, helping students develop their talent as well as the skills required in facing a continually evolving job market, and providing them with the chance to grow personally and professionally.

Cultural Programme

The College’s cultural programme supplements Ca’ Foscari’s degree programmes, increasing the students’ knowledge and providing them with additional innovated competencies.

Students can choose to take one of Ca’ Foscari’s degree programmes while participating in a wide range of interdisciplinary cultural activities, lectures and workshops at the same time.

The programme’s contents were devised by a teaching body made up of researchers and expert professionals who identified the most pressing and relevant global issues that students will come across during their tertiary studies and in the workforce.

The programme aims to emphasise both a university education and “social intelligence”.
