Since the 2016/2017 academic year, Ca’ Foscari University has had an inter-university co-operation relationship with the Goethe-Universität of Frankfurt am Main (Germany).

At the end of the course the students then get a double degree:
For selected Ca’ Foscari students in particular, the course of study within the two-year curriculum provides attendance for the second and third semester at the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main.
Access to the double-degree is open to students enrolled in the Italian Philology and Literature Master at Ca’ Foscari University. The call for applications is published every year around October time, and can be downloaded from the Relevant Documents table of this web page.
Students who enroll in this degree programme must have a knowledge of the German language at level B2 or above, and this will be evaluated in the selection procedure.
