Thinking toward the fall, Ca’ Foscari is taking steps to ensure the smooth integration of new non-EU students enrolling in our bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes.

While the university has offered access to classes and lectures both in-person and remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are committed to returning to an emphasis of the in-person attendance of classes and lectures starting in September. At the same time, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation has set a November 30 deadline for the issuance of the study visas that non-EU degree-seeking citizens require to enrol, which means that some students will likely end up receiving their visa only after the fall semester’s in-person classes have begun.

Therefore, in order to prevent non-EU students from missing their lectures due to the late issuance of their visa, the university will be providing such students with access to additional digital support materials (in some cases, these may be recordings of lectures, while in others, they could be materials of other kinds) until their visa is issued and they are able to arrive in Italy to attend their classes in person.

If you are a non-EU applicant planning on beginning your studies at Ca’ Foscari in the fall, we would strongly encourage you to begin the visa request process by pre-enrolling on the Universitaly platform as soon as you receive your letter of eligibility for enrolment.

As we get closer to the beginning of the next academic year, remember that you can always keep updated about the latest news regarding the university’s management of COVID-19 and the pandemic’s impact on the student experience any time, anywhere by visiting our online COVID-19 Information Hub.

Take care and stay healthy!
