The verification of admission requirements can be carried out prior to completing all the required exams or to having graduated.

Before proceeding with the online application of admission requirements, remember to arrange it in electronic format:

  • auto-certification of the degree with signed exams (in which the following is indicated: University where degree was carried out, classes and degree programme, degree data and marks, exams taken with the relative scientific-disciplinary sector and weighted credits). Check whether the auto-certification, completed with all the above information, can be printed from the personal area of the provincial University’s website; alternatively, use the model of auto-certification present on this page;
  • possible linguistic certification or useful documentation to certify belonging to one of the provided cases of exemption;
  • CV for verification of your personal preparation.

Diploma students at Accademia (new order) must auto-certificate the achievement of their qualification using the specific form.

Students and particular cases

If you participate in the evaluation as a student, during the completion of the online application you must substitute the degree grade with the weighted average of the exams you have taken, and the degree self certification with the self certification of enrolment onto exams.

If you are a student on a degree programme of the Old Order, you must fill in the online application, skipping over the part dedicated to inserting your curriculum requirements.

If you have achieved a qualification abroad you must verify the possession of curricular requirements and personal preparation by accessing the specific online procedure of evaluation.

Enrollment

You may enrol from July 1st to October 3rd, 2022.

A further enrolment period will be opened from November 15th to December 19th, 2022: registration will then involve the payment of a penalty of 50.00 Euros.

Graduands from the 2021/22 autumn session and students enrolled in a Master's degree programme who will graduate between October 3rd and December 2022 will be able to register from November 15th to December 19th 2022 without paying any penalty surcharge.

The deadline for the second installment, for those who will enrol from November 15th to December 19th 2022, is set for December 23rd 2022.

It is possible to enrol once your entry requirements have been verified, as indicated by the online application.  You may enrol only if you possess the entry requirements foreseen for your chosen Master’s Degree course.

To enrol you must only use the online procedure.

The procedure involves:

  • Registering online with the University: registration involves giving your personal details, residence and contact information.  You do not need to register online if you are already enrolled at Ca’ Foscari.
  • Online pre-enrolment: in order to pre-enrol, you must access the Personal Area on the website with your SPID (if you are not already enrolled at Ca’ Foscari) and select Department Administration Office and then select Enrol in open access Degree Courses. Once you have chosen the Master’s Degree, you will need to complete the online enrolment process. You will be asked to upload a photograph of yourself (passport sized, face on, clear and legible) in .jpeg format and then upload the following documentation:

    • copy of a valid identity document (front and back);
    • any additional documents necessary for enrolment ( for example, language certificates, Credit accreditation forms, self-certifications etc.);

If you have applied for entry requirement evaluation as a graduand, you must attach a signed self-certification form listing exams indicating: the name of the University, the name of the Course of study and class, the date of attainment and final degree mark, the name of individual exams with their scientific area and weight in credits. Verify if the self-certification form, complete with the above information, can be printed from your Personal Area of your University of origin. Alternatively, use the self-certification form found on this page.
Once the documents have been uploaded, it is necessary for you to confirm the information you have submitted and then continue on to the Payment section.

  • Payment of the first tax rates and tuition fees: the payment is made by clicking on the “payments” button generated at the end of filling in the matriculation application;
  • Completing the enrolment procedure: having completed the enrolment form and paying the first instalment of University fees does not mean that you have been automatically enrolled at Ca’. The enrolment procedure is completed within seven working days of payment. Confirmation of enrolment will be communicated by email.  Please note that the seven working days take effect from the payment date and exclude Saturday as is not considered a working day.

Special Circumstances

It is possible to enrol or transfer to a Degree course by requesting:

September Exam Session

The opportunity to take an exam in the September exam session is at the discretion of the Course of Study Teaching Committee: to participate, recent graduates must contact the Teaching Committee in advance and request authorization.  

Enrollment with ECTS Accreditation

In order to enrol with credit recognition, make the internal transition or transfer from another university, you must ask for the evaluation of the exams already taken and the release of the credits recognition sheet.

For admission to the year following the first, in addition, you have to be assigned a place: all the information is published in the final part of this page.

You may enrol in a Degree Programme requesting accreditation for the following previous studies and training activities:

  • Master's Degrees, or Master's Diplomas;
  • incomplete University studies as a result of withdrawal, lapsed status;
  • single courses;
  • Internship/traineeships/previous employment.

The year of enrolment is determined on the basis of the number of University Credits (CFU) you have been awarded:

  • Up to 47: admission to 1st year. There is no limited number of places. You will refer to the study plan for the a.y. 2022/2023;
  • From 48 or more: admission to 2nd year. You will need to apply for a place as well as the requirements specified in the respective Calls of Admission.  Enrolment is always subordinate to an assessment of your personal academic preparation and your prerequisite academic knowledge, needed for admission to Master’s Degree courses. You will refer to the study plan for the a.y. 2021/2022.

Enrolment with recognition of credits is subject to the fee payment of 300.00 euros. The payment invoice will be provided upon confirmation of enrolment.

You are not obliged to pay if you request credit transfer from activities undertaken previously at Ca' Foscari (for example single courses) if the code of the lectures corresponds to that required by the study plan. In the case that some lectures do not fall among those indicated in the study plan, and are thus entered as free exams, you will be have to pay the fee of 300.00 euros.

Enrolment with credit recognition is not allowed to students concurrently enroled in another University course and for which suspension has been requested.

The year of enrolment is established according to the number of university credits (ECTs) recognised:

  • up to 47: admission to 1st year of the programme;
  • from 48 or more: admission to 2nd year of the programme. You will need to apply for a place as well as the requirements specified in the respective Calls of Admission. You will refer to the study plan for the a.y. 2021/2022.

Request period

There are two deadlines for requesting the issue of the record, to be used in the procedure for assigning the place in a year following the first:

  • 28th June 2022;
  • 22nd August 2022.

If you enrol in the first year, however, request the recognition form well in advance of the deadline set in the enrolment notice: to complete the enrolment application, you will have to attach the approved record.

For recognition of your academic career, you must contact Humanistic Campus service.

You are required to submit:

  • a signed self-certification form listing exams. Please indicate for each exam: the name of the Course of study and class, the name of the University, the name of individual exams taken with their scientific area and weight in credits, the mark and the exam date. Please verify if self-certification is available in your University Reserved Area: if it is not available or, if all the required data is not listed, you may use the forms on this page;
  • any exam programmes in your possession.

Requests for accreditation are to be submitted to the Campus which will then be subject to evaluation by the Teaching Committee.  Once approved, the Accreditation Form will be sent to you via e-mail. Please remember to sign the form.

Warning! For the request for internal transfer there is no need to attach the self-certification. However, remember to report any exams that are not yet recorded.

Please note that it is not possible for you to fill in the credit recognition form on your own, unless you require the recognition of exams previously taken at Ca’ Foscari; in this case, the exams must have the same course code listed on the study plan of the programme in which you are enrolling (e.g. recognition of single courses taken at Ca’ Foscari).

Recognition Forms

Should you wish to request accreditation exclusively for previous Ca’ Foscari activities that have the same teaching code you find in the study plan of the course you wish to enrol in (for example, requesting accreditation for individual courses studied at Ca’ Foscari), you may complete the Accreditation Form by yourself and attach it directly during the online Enrollment procedure.

For Academic year 2022/23, admission onto the Master’s Degree programme in History of Arts and Conservation of Artistic Heritage requires:

  • specific curricula requirements, matured with the obtainment of a definite number of credits in certain disciplinary fields;
  • an adequate personal preparation;
