Enrolment in single courses

Enrolment in single courses is an interesting opportunity to integrate one’s university and/or professional curriculum. Ca’ Foscari University offers the possibility to enrol in single courses, that is, single courses within the various departments, as well as the opportunity to take the relevant exams. Exam results are provided to students through certification.

Some courses are divided into modules; in this case, in order to receive academic credits assigned to the specific course, the student must pass all of the exams for each of the modules that make up the course.
