International Open Days

International Open Days - Tune in to explore your options!

Given how many universities and study programmes there are to choose from, deciding where to get your university education can be challenging, especially if you are an international student considering the idea of studying abroad.

As a result, the Outreach and Recruitment Unit of the International Office organises a series of online International Open Days in English each winter to help you determine if Ca' Foscari and one of its English-taught bachelor's or master's degrees could be the right fit.

The schedule that appears below makes reference to this year's edition of the event. Check back here for updates about this year's edition, which is currently being planned for February 2022.

Who are they for?

The International Open Days are designed for international students interested in enrolling in a Bachelor's or Master's degree taught in English.

If you are interested in an Italian-taught programme, you can participate in the Italian-language Open Days [ITA] organised by the university's Counseling and Welcome Unit, which present all programmes regardless of the language in which they are taught.

How do they work?

The International Open Days showcase Ca' Foscari's English-taught programmes through a series of live webinars given by professors and current students.
Apart from the presentations of our study programmes, there are also others dedicated to student services – such as financial aid and housing – as well as enrichment opportunities – for example, double degree and exchange programmes and language courses.
We will even talk about how you go about applying for a programme that interests you on our online application platform,

The presentation schedule appears below. If you would like us to send you updates about the International Open Days, please write to us at

Why tune in?

At a time when travel is virtually impossible, the International Open Days give you the chance to explore Ca' Foscari without making the trip to Venice.
In order to offer a window onto the intellectual experience of studying here, the event allows you to hear from the people whose knowledge, perspectives and opinions matter to you the most when choosing a degree programme: professors and students. Their presentations will provide an overview of what each programme involves, how it is structured, and what it is like to be in the classroom.

In addition, the International Open Days help to familiarise you with the resources that would be available to you as a student. They also explain the various ways in which you would be able to enhance your study experience by talking about things like exchange programmes, elective courses, summer schools and our honours college.
While participating in the International Open Days there will even be the opportunity to ask questions during dedicated Q&A moments.
