As Prof. Bugliesi has said, “We understand that tuition fees are an important factor in a student’s decision about where to study. It is not by coincidence that Ca’ Foscari invests approximately 20 million euros per year in scholarships and bursaries, in order to facilitate a students’ development and wellbeing, broaden participation in higher education, and enhance the benefits of diversity amongst our staff and student communities.
Our university boasts a longstanding excellence in such fields as languages, foreign cultures and economics, as well as the history of art, climate change  and green chemistry: recruiting international students and offering them tailor-made services and high-quality teaching is not only a goal, but an everyday commitment.”
