In the 2010/2011 academic year Ca’ Foscari University of Venice reached an interuniversity cooperation agreement with the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero (UNTREF) of Buenos Aires, in Argentina. This led to the creation of a Joint Study Course, integrating the courses of the two partner universities and establishing periods of stay abroad for students and lecturers. At the end of the course the students therefore obtain a joint academic qualification:
For the Ca’ Foscari students selected, the study course comprises a four-month period at UNTREF during the first or second year and attendance at three university seminar courses with final examination. These courses are recognised by Ca’ Foscari with 30 credits (a quarter of the entire course).
In order to take part in the selection, students must apply following the procedures and observing the deadlines specified in the call for applications, published annually in May (and which can be consulted in the attachments to this web page).
Students enrolled in the Master Degree Course in History at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice are eligible for the joint diploma. The call for applications is published annually, in May, and can be downloaded from the Downloads table of this web page.
Students who enrol in this Study Course must have a satisfactory knowledge of Spanish. If not, the selected students will be required to follow a level B2 Spanish course in order to achieve a proficiency enabling them to gain full benefit from the period of study at UNTREF.
After selection, students must contact the Study Course coordinator (prof. Stefano Gasparri) to agree in advance their study plan with the examinations to be taken on the basis of the equivalences between the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero courses and the Ca' Foscari University of Venice courses.
Ca’ Foscari students can contact the Study Course coordinator (prof. Stefano Gasparri) for information on grants and scholarships.
As soon as the students arrive at the host university, they must report to the Oficina de Cooperación Internacional for submittal and signing of the following documents:

Before returning to Italy, students must fill in the second part of the stay abroad confirmation form (i.e. the part concerning departure from the host university and return to Italy) and have it signed by the host university.
Once they have returned to Italy, students must submit to the International Relations Department of Ca' Foscari original copies of the following documents:
To submit their degree application, students of the Joint Diploma in History must follow the procedure established for all the other Ca' Foscari students. The degree dissertation will be supervised by a tutor of Ca’ Foscari University and a tutor of Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero.
