Staff and students at the universities of Warwick and Ca’ Foscari in Venice stand to benefit from sharing student services, teaching and research seminars under a new agreement reached last month.
Under the partnership arrangements, staff from both universities will be able to attend research seminars taking place at each others’ facilities in Venice. Both universities hope that this will encourage the development of collaborative research projects.
Students at Ca’Foscari will have the opportunity to attend Warwick’s classes in History and History of Art at the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava (subject to capacity) and in return, Warwick students taking part in the ‘Venice term’ programme will benefit from the use of Ca’ Foscari’s library and access to its language courses at local student rates.
“This agreement will enrich the cultural experience of students from both universities, as well as offering great opportunities for researchers to share ideas and best practice,” said Professor Ann Caesar, Chair of Warwick’s Venice Academic Advisory Committee.
Warwick has been teaching in Venice for over 40 years and now has a full-time base in the 15th Century Palazzo Pesaro Papafava.
