For some time now the Venice Academy of Fine Arts has been engaged in exchanges of both students and teachers within the LLP/Erasmus programme.  Every year, bilateral contracts are stipulated with analogous universities in different EU countries (Spain, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Finland, etc.); The Academy is also working to extending similar types of cultural exchange to a wider number of countries.

It is important that students participating in the Erasmus exchange prepare in advance for their stay abroad. 

Before the departure, they will have to attend the following principle matters: the drawing up of a study plan to be carried out at the host university; it is absolutely necessary for the student to make prior agreements with the staff member responsible for exchanges. The credits awarded must be recognised by the sending Institution. 

Moreover, the student is obliged to follow the academic calendar of the partner university and, in particular, the dates of the course she/he is to attend. The academic calendar in some foreign universities may vary considerably from those in Italy, therefore we reccomend that the student check in advance the dates of the beginning of the semester.

The Director informs that after several meetings related to Study in Venice, all the students of the Academy, the Conservatory and the university sector are offered the opportunity to use a new web platform dedicated to the search of apartments for students in Venice historical center, a result obtained after a work carried out in recent months in collaboration with the City of Venice and trade associations acting in the area.

The initiative aims to increase the offer of accommodation available to students who intend to move to Venice c.s. from September 2020, guaranteeing facilitated rents and rental contracts in accordance with the law.

In addition, this collaboration aims to promote a conception of the city that moves away from the risks of mono-activity tourism and promotes an increasingly concrete integration of the university community, which is not only formed by the approximately 30,000 students enrolled at Iuav University, Ca' Foscari University, Academy of Fine Arts and Benedetto Marcello Conservatory, but also by teachers, technical administrative staff and collaborators.

All the useful information for students who are looking for a house in Venice and for owners who have a property and would like to rent it are available on: students.veniceapartment.com
