Venetian university exchange

Palazzi di Venezia

Thanks to an agreement between Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, Università IUAV di Venezia, the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, and the Music Conservatory Benedetto Marcello (the four higher education institutions of the Study in Venice project), students of these Venetian institutions can enrich their course of study by studying at a different university in the city of Venice.
The "Venetian Erasmus" programme allows students to take courses and exams at one of the partner institutions, and to have these exams recognised as part of their degree programme, at no extra cost. 

Contacts and reservations

Ca' Foscari Students

Ca’ Foscari students can find the information they need on our partner’s websites: Iuav, the Venice Academy of Fine Arts, and the Music Conservatory Benedetto Marcello [ITA].

Iuav, Venice Academy and Conservatory Students

If you are enrolled at Iuav, the Venice Academy of Fine Arts or the Music Conservatory Benedetto Marcello, you can take courses and exams at Ca’ Foscari. We suggest you contact the relevant office of your institution before you select the courses and exams you would like to take, in order to ensure that such courses can be included in your degree programme. 

Please note that you can only choose courses that match the level of the programme you are enrolled in. Thus, if you are enrolled in a Bachelor’s Degree Programme, you can only select Ca’ Foscari courses at that level; similarly, if you are enrolled in a Master’s Degree programme, you must select Ca’ Foscari courses at that level.

Course offer

In academic year 2022/2023, each eligible course can accept a maximum of 5 "Venetian Erasmus" students

Some courses may require that you take multiple modules. In order to gain university credits for a course, you must pass the exams of all the modules that course is articulated in. The number of modules each course is articulated is in the course description (e.g. 6 / 12 credits).
