U can retake it if u feel ur gpa is not good enough, a tactic i used to bump up my gpa from 2.7 to 3.3.

I had transferred into the final year of the program. The fee mentioned on the website is 2200 eur. I asked for a discount and they offered me a scholarship and i had to pay 1500 eur. Its self paced in the sense u can take the final exam whenever u want but an academic year is gonna last a year regardless of u completing all ur courses. They also allow credit transfer at their discretion.

As for recognition, i used that degree to get into NAU MCIT. I needed an evaluation ofcourse. I got it done by spantran and the assessment said my degree was equivalent to an RA BSc in computer science engineering amounting to 66 credits (not sure what the last part means). Marconi is recognized and accredited in italy by the ministry of education.

Congrats! I've just found out about these Italian universities and it's great to hear someone reporting back on them. 

I'm assuming that you transferred into your last year of their bachelor's in computer engineering.

Were the exams proctored? Did you have to take any in person?

I understand they have a full 1 year policy, but do you expect their could be potential for leniency on this?

Finally, would you say that it is achievable for the average person to complete a year's worth in 3 months if one devotes 40 hours a week to it?

Thanks
The exams are proctored. U wont be able to finish it in 3 months due to their policy. The duration has to be 1 year. U can enrol and take the tests in the last 3 months or the first 3 and then wait for the degree to be conferred. I needed like 40hrs to prep for each course and I managed to get a mix of As and Bs. My final GPA was 3.6 on a 4.0 scale.

Which program are u interested in?

Thanks for getting back to me on this. I was hoping they'd be a bit more lenient with the full year waiting period. Nonetheless, still a great deal. 

I'm actually interested in a "Master livello I" in nutrition and I'm considering about 3 or 4 Italian universities at the moment. I don't know if it will transfer as a Master's degree here in the U.S. but my research leads me to believe there's a good chance.

Most likely I'll have to do it in Italian too as I can't find any offering it in English.
