Additional Learning Requirements (OFA)

To access the degree programme, a basic understanding of Italian language and an understanding of English at level B1, at least, is required.

The admission test operates as a verification of the understanding of Italian language. In case you achieve a mark lower than 10 out of 30 in the Italian language questions, you will be assigned an OFA to carry out by September 2025. 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.

Regarding English language proficiency at level B1, you are exempt from verification if you have achieved one of the certifications listed or you meet the exemption requirements described at the language requirements webpage. Otherwise, you will be assigned an OFA to be recovered after enrolment and by September 30th 2025. After that date you will not be able to take the final exam of any area prior to the OFA fulfilment.

Students who have been assigned an OFA in English language cannot take exams relative to the subjects corresponding to the disciplinary field (SSD L-LIN/ 11 e L-LIN/ 12), as long as they have not fulfilled the obligation.

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, including the CLA B1 English test which allows students to fulfil the English language OFA.

  • from May 6th to June 25th 2024;
  • by August 19th 2024.

If you enrol in the first year, however, you will have to request the form at least 15 days before the enrolment deadline, as specified in the call for applications: in fact, when filling in the enrolment application, you will have to attach the approved form.

  • 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 for previous Ca’ Foscari activities

It is possible to fill out the credits recognition sheet independently and attach it with the online registration form if you were to request recognition exclusively from previous studies carried out at Ca' Foscari which have the same teaching code as the course which you are registering for (for example, if you are claiming recognition of individual courses taken at Ca' Foscari).
