Credit recognition

You can enroll both in a bachelor’s or a master’s degree program asking for credit recognition of activities already carried out for:

  • another bachelor’s degree, master’s degree or professional master already obtained;
  • unfinished university career because of withdrawal or decay;
  • single courses (outside of a degree scheme);
  • stage/internship/work activity.

Enrollment with credit recognition is not allowed for students currently enrolled in another university programme for which suspension was requested.

Enrollment with credit recognitions is subject to the payment of a fee of €300,00: the invoice for the payment will be generated when enrollment is confirmed.

You don’t need to pay this fee if you request credit recognition for:

  • activities previously accomplished at Ca' Foscari (for example individual courses) if the code of courses corresponds to that of the study plan of the programme you are enrolling into. If the courses aren’t included in the specific study plan and are thus inserted in the free choice courses you will have to pay the 300 Euros fee;
  • transfers from other Universities.

Procedures and deadlines 

Credit recognition request must be carried out before enrollment. 

For further information on procedures and deadlines, read the section Enrol > Admission > Enrollment with ECTS (European Credit Transfer System Credits) credit recognition of the pages of the specific bachelor’s or master’s degree programs that can be reached through www.unive.it/offertaformativa.
