Enrolment 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.

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. No intra-university transfers /transfers from another university are permitted during the first year of limited admission study programme. You are required to sit to the admission test and, if you obtain a place on the shortlist, withdraw from the study programme in which you are enrolled and re-enrol again.

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;
  • simultaneous enrolment.

  • Up to 47: admission to 1st year. You are required to sit for the Admission test. You will refer to the study plan for the a.y. 2023/2024.

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 enrolled in another University course and for which suspension has been requested.
