Verification and fulfillment of OFAs (Additional Learning Requirements)

To access the degree programmes, an adequate understanding of mathematics and English at level B2, at least, is required.

The admissions test operates as a verification of the Additional Learning Obligations (OFA) in Mathematics. In case you achieved a mark lower than 6 out of 13 in mathematics section you will be assigned an OFA.

In case of attribution of the OFA in Mathematics, you will not be able to take any exam related to the business, economics or mathematics-statistics area before its fulfilment. If the OFA has not been fulfilled by September 30th 2025 you will not be able to take the final exam of any area prior to the OFA fulfilment.

Candidates who passed a SAT test with a score of 535 or more out of 800 in the “Sat Math” or a GMAT test with a score of 42 or more out of 60 in the “GMAT Quantitative” are exempted from the Additional Learning Requirement (OFA) in Mathematics.

English language proficiency at level B2 must be attested at the time of enrolment: visit the language requirements webpage to consult the list of recognized language certifications and the exemption requirements. Students who fail to certify B2 proficiency in English will not be eligible for enrolment.

Students who enrol in a subsequent year to their first one (e.g. change of University, change of degree programme within Ca’ Foscari, enrolment with credit recognition) must have fulfilled the Additional Learning Requirements (OFA) by the time of the enrolment. It is not possible to take any exam until the OFA has been fulfilled.
