About Us


A Warwick education knows no boundaries, especially not geographical ones. For more than 40 years, we've leased teaching premises in Venice to give students in History, History of Art and the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance the opportunity to spend a term living what they learn. We're the only UK university to have a school in Venice so our graduates leave with a truly unique educational experience along with a deep understanding of the Renaissance period.

A special word: Professor Michael Scott

"Not only is Warwick's Venice school a great place to hold a conference and enjoy a great lecture programme, but the staff are so friendly and helpful; through them I accessed everything I could need for my research at Ca Foscari University"
