Change of programme

I want to change my degree program, is it possible?

I am enrolled in the first year of a Bachelor's or Master's degree course with planned attendance, can I make an internal course change?

No, this is not permitted, even for a course with open access. 

I have taken single courses, will they be recognised during the transition? 

Si, anche gli esami sostenuti come corsi singoli possono essere riconosciuti al fine del passaggio interno.


Change of system

I am studying under the old program, can I make a transition to the new program? 

Yes, credits can also be re-evaluated based on the exams taken, with a subsequent reformulation of the study program. The information can be consulted on the Changing your degree programme, system or University page.

Once I have made the transition to the new program, can I go back to the previous one?

No, the decision is irrevocable. Once accepted, you cannot return to the previous study program. The information can be consulted on the Changing your degree programme, system or University page. 


Change of University

What if the transfer is not successful?

If the transfer procedure is not completed at the destination University, the latter will return the documentation to Ca' Foscari, to which you will have to pay the full amount of the university fees and contributions for the new academic year.

No, the request can only be made during the projected period.

Once I've asked for the transfer, for how long subsequently may I take exams?
