Ca' Foscari University of Venice

Introduction

About Ca’ Foscari

Originally established as Italy’s first business school in 1868, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice is now a multidisciplinary institution offering a wide range of study programmes in economics and management, foreign languages, the humanities and the sciences, and it has become one of the country’s top-ranked universities. Ca’ Foscari has a student body of 20,000 undergraduate and 4,000 graduate students, and hosts over 1,000 foreign students each year.

Thanks to its location in the awe-inspiring historic centre of Venice, the university provides the unique and rewarding opportunity of studying and carrying out research in one of the world’s most beautiful cities, representing a context in which cultural tradition and intellectual innovation come together.

With a reputation for excellence in research, it has earned more of the EU’s coveted Marie Curie grants than any other Italian institution in recent years, and in the 2017 QS subject rankings, Ca’ Foscari is among the world’s top 150 universities for Modern Languages and the top 200 for Economics & Econometrics.

The university also fosters a well-rounded study experience through its provision of a panoply of student services and a variety of sports activities and student associations.

Location

Ca’ Foscari University is located in the world-famous city of Venice, a unique urban centre situated in a lagoon on the north-eastern coast of Italy that is directly connected to the Adriatic Sea.

Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is built on an archipelago located in a shallow lagoon that comprises over 100 islands connected by footbridges. Since canals take the place of roads, people move around the city by foot and by boat. In fact, Venice is Europe’s largest modern urban car-free city.

The city is characterized by a wealth of stunning historic architecture and art because the historical Republic of Venice was a thriving trading port and major maritime power during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, so some of the city’s sites are included on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.

In addition to a colourful past, however, Venice has an equally vibrant present, for it continues to be a hub of contemporary art and culture.

Living in the historic centre of Venice means living an environmentally conscious lifestyle. Due to the need to walk most places, the city’s public spaces become social hubs. In fact, one of the most eagerly awaited moments in a Venetian student’s day is the so-called aperitivo in campo, or outdoor aperitif: from the afternoon through to late evening, areas such as Campo Santa Margherita and the Erbarìa at Rialto turn into venues where people gather to chat and listen to music while they drink spritz and eat cicchetti – the traditional local aperitif and snacks that Venice is famous for.
