Program Description:


“There is something magical that occurs in a classroom with students from very different cultural backgrounds. It turns out we all have something new to bring to the table and it reminds you of how many other perspectives are out there and shows you what various cultures value.” - Kelsey, Fall 2013

The Program: Through a formal agreement with Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Georgia State University provides students with the opportunity to spend from one semester to one academic year in the captivating city of canals and palaces, Venice, Italy. Ca' Foscari University has a national and international reputation for academic excellence in both teaching and research. Thanks to its liaisons with Venice International University (VIU) and the Centro Linguistico Interfacolta' (CLI), Ca' Foscari University offers assistance in language learning and provides a wide choice of courses in four main areas: economics, languages, science and humanities.

Eligibility: Students must be undergraduate or graduate students in good academic standing. All majors are welcome to apply. Enrollment is limited to 10 students each year--apply early.

*International students at Georgia State who hold F-1 visas must contact the Office of International Students and Scholar Services at 404-413-2070 to discuss possible implications of study abroad for their immigration status.

Courses and Credit: Students will earn GSU credit for their courses.  The list of Spring 2015 classes at VIU will be updated online:

Accommodations:  The Ente per il Diritto allo Studio (ESU), an institution of the Venetian region, can provide relatively inexpensive student accomodation in the University student buildings. Students can also check University notice boards for apartments to share with other students.

Costs: Regular Georgia State University tuition and fees, please see Tuition Rates plus mandatory international medical insurance. Students are responsible for airfare, lodging, food, and personal expenses.
