on Campus Student Experience

The American educational model is closer to the world of work

On cam­pus classes en­cour­age the ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion of stu­dents through crit­i­cal read­ings, case stud­ies and in­di­vid­ual re­search that pro­voke orig­i­nal re­flec­tions and con­clu­sions. Stu­dents are con­tin­u­ally stim­u­lated by teach­ers to work in­di­vid­u­ally and in groups, to un­der­stand the value of com­par­i­son and ne­go­ti­a­tion and to de­velop pro­jects, man­ag­ing and plan­ning the dif­fer­ent phases. The lessons are aimed at achiev­ing the ob­jec­tives set by the course study plan, as well as at spe­cific trans­ver­sal skills such as prob­lem-solv­ing, re­sult ori­en­ta­tion, time man­age­ment, sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity.

Support and guidance from a personal tutor

Amer­i­can uni­ver­si­ties value timely grad­u­a­tion and that stu­dents com­plete their studies with­out delay to be able to enter and be com­pet­i­tive in the job mar­ket. For this rea­son, in order to fa­cil­i­tate the achieve­ment of stu­dents’ pro­fes­sional and per­sonal goals, Mar­coni In­ter­na­tional Uni­ver­sity in­tro­duced tutors as an im­por­tant ref­er­ence point for both the on­line and the on cam­pus pro­grams. The tutor pro­vides a per­son­al­ized ori­en­ta­tion aimed at fa­cil­i­tat­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion and pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of the var­i­ous study and prac­ti­cal ac­tiv­i­ties. In the Bach­e­lor, Mas­ters and Doc­tor­ate pro­grams the tutor mo­ti­vates the stu­dents to achieve the ob­jec­tives within the es­tab­lished time frame and con­stantly mon­i­tors the stu­dent’s path, iden­ti­fy­ing any prob­lems and plan­ning spe­cific in­ter­ven­tion ac­tiv­i­ties in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the teach­ers.

A personalized program

Stu­dents can per­son­al­ize their pro­gram with dif­fer­ent spe­cial­iza­tions. In un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grams, the first year in­cludes a “gen­eral ed­u­ca­tion” pro­gram which is fol­lowed by spe­cial­iza­tion courses in the sub­se­quent years. In post­grad­u­ate pro­grams, dif­fer­ent con­cen­tra­tions are of­fered, di­rected at spe­cific pro­fes­sional roles. Stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to achieved a spe­cial­ized train­ing in a spe­cific sec­tor or in a cer­tain func­tion and to be more com­pet­i­tive in the job mar­ket.

An orientation to success

Amer­i­can uni­ver­si­ties are very com­pet­i­tive, their pres­tige de­pends on the qual­ity of the teach­ing of­fered and the suc­cess their grad­u­ates will have in life. There­fore, teach­ers al­ways mo­ti­vate stu­dents to learn and pass tests and exams. Their avail­abil­ity trans­mits trust to stu­dents in an en­vi­ron­ment in which en­gage­ment and work are en­cour­aged and where a com­par­i­son and a con­struc­tive ex­change is fos­tered. This ap­proach supports students and stim­u­lates them to give their best, building their future careers.

The opportunity to work and Optional Practical Training (OPT)

Amer­i­can uni­ver­si­ties are or­gan­i­cally linked to the job mar­ket. From the be­gin­ning of your de­gree, you are en­cour­aged to build your pro­fes­sional ca­reer and are in­volved in in­tern­ships and prac­ti­cal ac­tiv­i­ties. The F1 stu­dent visa al­lows in­ter­na­tional stu­dents to work up to 20 hours per week while they are at­tend­ing their Bach­e­lor or Mas­ter pro­gram. In ad­di­tion, after grad­u­a­tion, stu­dents with an F1 stu­dent visa have the op­por­tu­nity to ob­tain an OPT visa that al­lows them to work in the USA for 1 year, putting the skills ac­quired dur­ing the pro­gram into prac­tice. For some sec­tors like en­gi­neer­ing, math­e­mat­ics, sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy the OPT can be ex­tended for a fur­ther 17 months.
