Thanks to bilateral mobility agreements between non-EU universities and Ca’ Foscari, incoming overseas students are selected by their universities for participation in international cultural exchanges. Their stay in Venice will enhance their university education, increase their knowledge of other cultures and languages, and provide them with an important life experience.

In order to officially close your Overseas period in Venice, you have to take an appointment with the Welcome Unit.
The Welcome Unit staff will give you your final official certificate.
As soon as your exam results have been registered at the end of your study period in Venice, you will receive your Transcript of Records from the Welcome Unit, which will include a conversion of your grades according to the ECTS scale.
The ECTS grades are generated automatically upon the creation of your transcript by taking into account the results obtained by all of the students who have taken the same exam at Ca' Foscari in the last three years.
Here is an example of how the calculation works: Mario Lopez received a grade of 19/30 on the "English Language" exam associated with the code LT005P.
The percentage of Ca' Foscari students who obtained the same grade on the same exam in the last three years is 2%, which on the ECTS scale is interpreted as an E.
The formula used in this conversion process can be found in the ECTS guide published by the European Commission.
