The Venice Term

The Venice Term at Warwick is a unique initiative that gives undergraduate and postgraduate students the opportunity to spend a full university term living and studying in Venice

With modules taught by Warwick academics who are leading scholars in the field, students have the chance to learn about the city's art, architecture, history and culture from the Middle Ages to the present day

Our location

We have recently moved to new premises in the Palazzo Giustinian Lolin, one of most distinguished palaces on the Grand Canal. The programme has been running for 47 years. Read more about our history in Venice

Great emphasis is placed on the examination of buildings and works of art in their original settings. In addition to weekly classroom-based lectures, there are student-led seminars in churches, museums, galleries and the Biennale (whenever possible)

To place Venetian art and architecture and its display into its broader context, students are taken on a number of out-of-town trips to key centres on the mainland, which may include Padua, Vicenza, Verona (particularly to experience Palladian villas). We've even made it as far as Milan and Rovereto on occasion!

Warwick is the only art history programme in the UK that offers students this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live and study in Venice for 10 consecutive weeks, with student-led seminars and events free to all students
