International relations


Since its establishment, UniversitÓ Iuav di Venezia has developed its international academic activities with the aim of improving the quality of its educational programmes. It has done so by adapting itself to the principles of free academics and research, and free knowledge circulation, aware of the social role held by university education and scientific research.


Iuav takes on and promotes the international character of its training programmes, given its membership in the European Higher Education Area.

It developes international networks, activating study programmes in collaboration with universities in other countries that enable curricula enrichment, exchange of students, and use of languages. All this in order to also foster relations with national and international public and private institutions, presenting Iuav students and graduates to an international level of job orientation.


To pursue these principles, UniversitÓ Iuav di Venezia constantly develops protocols of understanding and implementation conventions of training and cooperation with universities and institutions in Europe and in the rest of the world, allowing exchanges of teachers and students.


In fact, the university holds about:

– 200 conventions with European institutions

– 70 conventions with non-European institutions


These are the reasons for Iuav student satisfaction: the wide choice of partner universities in which to experience international mobility.

Each academic year presents about 350 inbound and outbound exchange situations.

Furthermore, students are given the possibility to study and to attend traineeship abroad within the support of the Erasmus+ grant programme.

There are also many opportunities for short mobility (international workshops) with the participation of foreign students and professionals.


Iuav also offers several double degree programmes: by studying (2/3 semesters) in a Partner University, students have the chance to award a double degree (one from Iuav and the other one from the Partner).


Double degree partners are:

> ╔cole Nationale d'Architecture Paris Val de Seine

> Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Chile;

> Universidad de Chile, Chile;

> UniversitÚ de Reims-Champagne Ardenne, France;

> Universidad Diego Portales, Chile;

> Universidad Mayor, Chile;

>Tongji University – College of Architecture and Urban Planning, P.R. China;
