The procedure involves:
If you have applied for entry requirement evaluation as a graduand, you must attach a signed self-certification form listing exams indicating: the name of the University, the name of the Course of study and class, the date of attainment and final degree mark, the name of individual exams with their scientific area and weight in credits. Verify if the self-certification form, complete with the above information, can be printed from your Personal Area of your University of origin. Alternatively, use the self-certification form found on this page.
Once the documents have been uploaded, it is necessary for you to confirm the information you have submitted and then continue on to the Payment section.
It is possible to enrol or transfer to a Degree course by requesting:
The opportunity to take an exam in the September exam session is at the discretion of the Course of Study Teaching Committee: to participate, recent graduates must contact the Teaching Committee in advance and request authorization.
You may enrol in a Master’s Degree Programme requesting accreditation for the following studies and training activities:
Credit accreditation is possible only for those activities that have not been previously used for other awards. This does not exonerate students from being tested on their personal preparation and their prerequisite academic knowledge.
Enrolment with credit accreditation is not allowed to students concurrently enrolled in another University course and for which suspension has been requested.
The request for credit recognition must be submitted to the Campus/Department Teaching Office by September 12th 2018. After this date the only accreditation requests that will be accepted are those arriving between the dates of October 15th 2018 to November 23th 2018 exclusively for students enrolling in a Master’s Degree in the November 14th 2017 to December 14th 2018 period.
The Accreditation Request Form must be attached when completing the online enrolment procedure.
Please refer to Campus Services for Degree programmes in the fields of Economics, Scientific and Humanities; to the Treviso Campus for Degree programmes offered there; and, to the Department Teaching Office for Degree courses offer in Linguistics. You are required to submit:
Requests for accreditation are to be submitted to the Campus/Department Teaching Office, which will then be subject to evaluation by the Teaching Committee. Once approved, the Accreditation Form will be sent to you via e-mail. Please remember to sign the form.
Should you wish to request accreditation exclusively for previous Ca’ Foscari activities that have the same teaching code you find in the study plan of the course you wish to enrol in (for example, requesting accreditation for individual courses studied at Ca’ Foscari), you may complete the Accreditation Form by yourself and attach it directly during the online Enrollment procedure.
Accreditation will be made based on the following criteria:
If you have a Professional Master’s Programme, you can get recognition up to a maximum of 60 Credits.
The activities recognized by Bachelor’s, Master’s Degrees or Professional Master’s Diplomas have no impact in terms of the final mark average needed for admission to graduation. On the other hand, the activities accredited from the study of single courses and incomplete university studies following withdrawal, lapsed student status or incoming transfer are taken into consideration in the final mark average.
Enrolment is always subordinate to an assessment of your personal academic preparation and your prerequisite academic knowledge, needed for admission to Master’s Degree courses.
Please note that in choosing the degree programme and a curriculum, you will only find courses for the 2018/2019 academic year: the Accreditation Form will be taken into consideration when it is time to finalize your enrolment. You will be enrolled in the exact year and with the curriculum specified on the Form.
Some students may be exempt from payment of the accreditation fee: please see the Payment FAQs.
