OVERVIEW

Originally established as Italy’s first business school in 1868, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice is now a multidisciplinary institution with 22,000 students offering a wide range of study programs in economics and management, modern languages, the humanities and the sciences.

Ca’ Foscari is third in Italy for the excellence of its research, and it has earned so many of the coveted European Commission Marie Curie research fellowships that it is one of Europe’s ten most successful universities in this regard. Globally, the QS World University Rankings place Ca’ Foscari among the world’s top 100 universities for Modern Languages, the top 150 for History, the top 200 for Linguistics and Geography, and the top 250 for Economics & Econometrics as well as Accounting & Finance.

Ca’ Foscari prepares its students for the competitive global workplace and fosters an international, inclusive academic community by offering more than 20 study programmes entirely taught in English. In the firm belief that higher education and impactful research must be both innovative and international, the university has forged an extensive academic network of partner universities spanning the globe, allowing it to offer over 30 joint/double degree programmes and more than 700 exchange agreements with institutions all over the world. 

Ca’ Foscari is located in the awe-inspiring city of Venice. With canals and boats instead of streets and cars, this city’s truly singular historic center has been a vibrant place of cultural and economic exchange for over a millennium, and the beauty of its art and architecture has made it a UNESCO World Heritage site. Thanks to the stimulating cultural legacy of its dynamic cosmopolitan context, Ca’ Foscari is characterized by the synergetic intersection of tradition and intellectual innovation, offering its students and professors the uniquely rewarding opportunity to learn and work in one of the world’s most remarkable cities.

In addition, it organizes a university preparation programme called the Foundation Year for international students who have fewer than the 12 years of schooling required to enrol at an Italian university or who want to improve their knowledge of English or Italian before applying for admission to an English- or Italian-taught bachelor's degree programme.
