  • students with a certified disability equal to or higher than 66% or with disabilities recognized under article 3 comma 1 of Law no. 104 of February 5, 1992, are entitled to a total exemption from fees with the exception of stamp duty and the Regional Right to Education Tax;

Reductions

The amount due as fees may be reduced further based on merit criteria (independently from the ISEE means-test declaration).

Further fee reductions may be applied: where more than one member of the same family is enrolled at Ca’ Foscari and for students with a certified disability between 50% and 65%.

These reductions may be combined with other funding granted by the "Student Act" or with other financial aid foreseen for merit or income criteria.

ATTENTION: If you are  enrolled in the Digital Management Bachelor’s Degree programme you will not be able to benefit from the reductions indicated below and you will be held to the contribution required by your degree programme.

Merit-based reductions

Reductions are calculated automatically and are applied to the total amount due as the fee balance without your having to make any specific request.

A band of academic excellence corresponding to a reduction of € 315.00 for full-time students and € 205.00 for part-time students is also foreseen. These reductions are given in the following cases:

  • first year students with a minimum Higher School Certificate mark of 98 out of 100 (or a minimum of 58 out of 60 for school leavers up to the 1998/99 academic year);
  • students enrolled in successive academic years who satisfy both of the following conditions:

1. To have achieved and registered the credits resulting from the exams held by September 30, 2017 on their personal page as follows:

Year* ECTS full-time students ECTS part-time students
2 54 27
3 108 54
4 no reduction 81
5 no reduction 108
6 no reduction no reduction

(*) “Year” refers to the number of years the student has been enrolled starting from their first enrolment in their first year at any University, as in the case of transfers from other Universities or from other Ca’ Foscari programmes.

Credits gained from the following may be used to calculate merit:

  • exams or internships recognized in past academic studies which have concluded with a qualification or following withdrawal/loss of student status or from other activities, even if held before enrolment and for which students have been granted accreditation;
  • exams taken for single courses previous to enrolment to the Degree;
  • exams that have not been completed (partial exams are not considered);
  • eligibility certificates/internships/seminars also gained after enrolment.

After six years of part-time enrolment the student acquires full-time status with the resulting rules for determining merit.

To determine the number of years and merits for students who initially enrolled as “part-time” students and who continue their university career as “full-time” students as per the above table, every two years studied at “part-time” status qualifies as one “full-time” year of study. In any case, every year of “part-time” study is regarded as one full year of study.  To determine the number of years and merit for students who started their university career as “full-time” students and then continue as “part-time” students, each academic year of “full-time” study qualifies as two years of “part-time” study.

2. To have gained the following marks (out of 30): the range of marks for each field of study in relation to the weighted mark average in undergraduate degree programmes of the same academic field will be considered. In particular, for the following fields:

  • Economics: a minimum mark of 28/30;
  • Humanities: 30/30;
  • Languages: a minimum mark of 29/30;
  • Science: a minimum mark of 29/30.

The mark 30 cum laude will be counted as 30 for the purposes of determining the mark average used for the final degree mark.

To benefit from merit-based reductions, you may not already hold a degree either obtained before or after Ministerial Decree 509/1999 (Laurea Vecchio Ordinamento or Laurea Nuovo Ordinamento) gained in Italy or abroad. Nor may you hold a Diploma issued by the Conservatorium or Academy of Fine Arts or a Bachelor’s Degree issued under Law no. 508/1999.
