    Tell us about Ca' Foscari University of Venice
    Ca' Foscari is an excellent university that I am proud to belong to. Since my arrival the international office as well as the faculty of management have provided me with all the information from my visa to how to schedule my classes and study plan.

    The university guided me to get my accommodation upon my arrival in Venice, the communication with them has always been reciprocal and very clear and if I have any problem they are there. They also informed me about the many associations that exist to belong to and to meet more students.

    There is a very complete guide for students regarding transportation, social life and tutors that help you during your stay at the university.

    I'm in my third year of my Master's degree now, and during these years I'm studying here, I implemented my own hashtag, that describes my experience best: #CaFoscariCares
    The number of services the university provides, how helping and open-minded the personnel and staff is, how many academical resources the uni provides..! A LOT, guys! And as for the student life in Venice, I beg no one expects SO many activities going on in Venice before actually coming here!
    Also, the uni is very flexible in an academic sense, you could choose quite a few additional courses from any other programme, and besides, there are always a few attempts for you to pass any exam! Even if you pass but just wanna improve your records, just take an exam again, no one would mind that!
