  • you must have completeted the minimum credits requirements (credits effectively registered in the student's record book) between August 11, 2019 and August 10, 2020 as indicated below:

Bachelor's Degree Programme

Year* ECTS full-time students ECTS part-time students
1 0 0
2 minimum 10 yearly 0
3 minimum 25 yearly minimum 5 yearly
4 minimum 25 yearly minimum 5 yearly
5 - minimum 12 yearly
6 - minimum 13 yearly

Master’s Degree Programmes

Year* ECTS full-time students ECTS part-time students
1 0 0
2 minimum 10 yearly 0
3 minimum 25 yearly minimum 5 yearly
4 - minimum 5 yearly

(*) “Year” refers to the number of years the student has been enrolled starting from their first enrolment in their first year at any University, as in the case of transfers from other Universities or from other Ca’ Foscari programmes.

For the purpose of calculating merit for obtaining benefits, any years of suspension from studies are not counted, except in cases where the suspension has been determined by disciplinary measures. Furthermore, credits coming from:

  • Exams or internships recognized in past academic studies which have concluded with a qualification or following withdrawal/loss of student status or from other activities, even if held before enrolment and for which students have been granted accreditation;
  • Exams taken for single courses previous to enrolment to the Degree programme;
  • Exams that have not been completed (partial exams are not considered).

After six years (for Bachelor’s Degrees) or four years (for Master’s Degrees) of part-time enrolment, the student acquires the status of full-time student with the resulting rules for determining merit.

To determine the number of years and merits for students who initially enrolled as “part-time” students and who continue their university career as “full-time” students as per the above table, every two years studied at “part-time” status qualifies as one “full-time” year of study. In any case, every year of “part-time” study is regarded as one full year of study.  To determine the number of years and merits for students who started their university career as “full-time” students and then continued as “part-time” students, each academic year of “full-time” study qualifies as two years of “part-time” study.
