From the academic year 2017/2018, students will have access to an incredible opportunity of international education. The Ca’ Foscari University of Venice - Department of Humanities (DSU) has signed an agreement with University College London, one of the most prestigious universities in the world, to offer a double degree in Humanities and Italian Studies / Italian and History of Art. The double title from Ca’ Foscari and UCL will be awarded to students at the end of a four year course - in line with the British university system.

After enrolling, carried out at UCL by the end of January, students will spend the first two years studying at Ca’ Foscari in Venice. After this, the students will go to London to complete their last two years at UCL and then graduate with a double degree:

  • Bachelor's Degree in Humanities (L-5) at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice
  • Italian Studies / Italian and History of Art at UCL

Entry Requirements and Admission

Ten students from around the world will be recruited. These students will be required to know both Italian and English and to have an adequate profile of studies.

All registration will be administered through - this website deals with all British university enrollment administration.


Students will be required to comply with fees and procedures specific to the Ca’ Foscari University for their first and second year and those specific to UCL for third and fourth year.
