From Italian Maturita’ to an American Bachelor’s Degree – an exchange between students, parents, and professors about the myths and successes of Italians with an American degree. Choosing a university is an important decision in every student’s life, and in a period of crisis and recession, it is an investment that should be carefully considered.We continue to see more and more troubling figures about unemployment amongst young people in Italy. In 2013, thousands of youth within Italy – 71.3% more than the previous year – decided to leave their homes to study abroad, convinced they would find more job opportunities with a different type of degree.But what if they could earn the same degree here in Italy?There are many misunderstandings and ambiguities regarding non-Italian degrees.
The American University of Rome (AUR) offers all high school graduates and their parents the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the American education system and the value of an American degree on Monday, July 28th at 18:00, at our campus on Via Pietro Roselli 4, Rome. The Honorable Francesco Profumo, former Italian Minister of Education, University, and Research will also participate. Furthermore, Professors and students of AUR will be made available.
Current liceo/high school students and newly graduated students will also have the opportunity to take a free English entrance exam at 16.00.
