Admission

For students in their first undergraduate year in 2018/19 a.y.: Ca’ Foscari International College offers 7 full scholarships (reductions) in the form of “vouchers” for the total cost of fees, and 3 partial scholarships for a reduction of 70%. All students must pay the regional tax and stamp duty.

For the 2018/19 a.y. there will be one call for applications divided into two different selections:

- a pre-admission selection in April 2018, reserved to international students: students holding an international high school title or in their way to achieve it at the end of the 2017/18 scholastic year, or holding an International Baccalaureate-IB title. The first and second best ranked will have priority on the final ranking and the possibility to enrol immediately at the College;
- a selection in May 2018, for Italian students and international students who did not apply for the pre-admission in April. 

The College reserves the right to scroll down the final ranking of eligible students in there are places still available.

Admission Criteria

Students must submit a letter of motivation in English (between 200 and 400 words) that outlines: their aims (what I want to achieve); their expectations (what additional experiences can the College offer me); their attitude (why I think I’m a good candidate); a personal experience  that demonstrates that their attitude makes them good candidates for the College.

Students must have very good knowledge of English (B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference); international students must also know Italian at level B2 unless they are enrolling in a degree taught entirely in English.
