  • other bachelor or master’s degrees or professional Master’s diploma already conferred;
  • a university career not completed due to withdrawal or cessation;
  • single courses;

Request Period

The deadline for the request of recognition of credits at the Campus/Department Teaching offices is 12 September 2017.

The approved and signed form must be enclosed with the application of online registration.

Request Procedure

For recognition of your academic career, you must contact Campus services for Bachelor’s degree programmes in Economics, Sciences and Humanities, Campus services in Treviso for courses pertinent to that location, to the Department Teaching Office for Bachelor’s degree programmes in the Linguistic area. You will be asked to provide:

  • a signed self-certification stating the exams written which specify: the name of the course of study and the class to which it is relevant, the university, the name of the exams taken with the pertinent scientific field and its value in credits, the mark, and the date the exam was written. Verify that the self-certification is available in the Personal Area of your University: if it is not available or not all the information is indicated, you may use the forms on this page;
  • any potential examinations.

The Campus/ Department Teaching offices will collect the requests for credit recognition which will be submitted to an evaluation by the Teaching College. The credits recognition sheet, once approved by the Board, will be sent to you via e-mail. Please remember to sign the sheet.

It is possible to fill out the credits recognition sheet independently and attach it with the online registration form if you were to request recognition exclusively from previous studies carried out at Ca' Foscari which have the same teaching code as the course which you are registering for (for example, if you are claiming recognition of individual courses taken at Ca' Foscari).


Criteria for ECTS Credits Recognition

Recognition will be made based on the following criteria:

  • the credits earned in former Bachelor’s courses under the ex M.D. 509/1999 and M.D. 270/2004 will be recognized while maintaining the effective number of credits; the exception will be Ca’ Foscari students who have withdrawn/ceased their studies, for whom there are specific incentives (see the specific FAQ dedicated to this topic);
  • exams already used as entry requirements will not be recognized.

If you already have a Professional Master’s Programme diploma, you can obtain a recognition of maximum 60 credits.

The activities recognized by Master’s/Specialist degrees or Professional Master’s already awarded will have no impact in terms of marks achieved on the total average for the Bachelor’s degree, but it will recognize the single courses and the student’s academic career that was suspended due to withdrawal, cessation or transfers from another university.
