I have studied in english for YEARS so the language was actually no problem for me...in fact, many of us spoke better english than most teachers...try saying the word "weird" to Valeria Forzano...she will have NO CLUE what it means.

Course recommendations
There is a HUGE problem with this course (actually more than one)...they have a LOT of courses and try to cover ALL of them with in just 3 hours (and I mean 3 hours in total). Hospitality (hotels) have the most number of hours which is insane, the proportion is like 40% of all courses are hospitality 20% general management and then divided the 40% remaining between dozens of courses that they wish to teach but do not succeed. By the end of the course you have listened to soooo many teachers that you don't remember who said what anymore. Some of them don't even speak good english wich makes it really hard to follow. If you are interested in tourism (and not hospitality) forget about this master..it will get you no where...in fact many people in my class had to settle with jobs and internships they didn't want because the school has mainly HOTEL partners and were not able to find other kind of opportunities The exams! They are really unbelievable because no matter how much you study you will only pass them if you are able to find the most hidden answer in the book (I mean, powerpoint slides because we NEVER got any books to study from). All exams are open book, so the questions are really meant not to make you think but to waste time looking for a really really really hidden answer.

Personal comments
Oh boy, where to begin? Well, all I have to say is that many of us tried to give feedback (because one thing I must say is that we did meet with the program manager and director very often which was good) and the answer we got was: oh, that is strange, it is the first time someone has said that to us. So if you don't say something that has already been said before, it will be unlikely taken into account.

Overall
I wish I had known...
Yes, I wish someone had given me an honest feedback about the master...their own point of view like I'm doing now...the only person I could get in touch with and get "feed-back" about the program was a past student who was also friend of the program coordinator so maybe the only information I had about the master was a little biased

I have too many...if they read what I've written I'm sure they'll figure it out. It is a good school but needs lots of improvements!

This university DOES NOT provide housing nor helps you find an appartment. You are supposed to find it yourself and get in touch with other students to find a flat mate
