The new Double Degree Program between Ca' Foscari University and Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (Florianópolis, Brasil) is active starting from the a.y. 2023/2024.

The Double Degree offers students from the two universities the opportunity to follow an international course of study, attending part of their study path at the university of enrolment and part (one semester, equivalent to 30 ECTS) at the host university. The two degrees will be acquired simultaneously.

Participating students will write a thesis under co-supervision of Professors of both Universities; the dissertation may take place at any of the two partner universities. At the end of the course of study, students will thus obtain a double degree:

  • Master's degree in European, American and Postcolonial Languages and Literatures from Ca' Foscari University of Venice;
  • Mestrado em Estudos da Tradução from Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina.

Who can apply

As far as Ca' Foscari is concerned, the programme is reserved for students who have successfully completed the examinations for the first year of the Master’s Degree Programme in European, American and Postcolonial Languages and Literatures (LLEAP).

Students enrolling in this programme must certify that their level of Portuguese language knowledge is satisfactory (level C1 or C2 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages).

How to apply

To be able to participate in the selection process, it is necessary to apply following the procedures and deadlines reported in the call for applications, published annually.

Double/joint degree selection results will be published on this webpage according to the specific timeline mentioned in the Annex A.
