There's no fee to lodge an application for Italian citizenship recognition.

With Italian/EU citizenship, you could finish your schooling in the EU at the reduced costs paid by citizens.

Of course, it is a little more complex than as simply stated above, however it is doable.

Its actually a lot more complex than that.

Unless willing to take a break of several years whilst living in the EU before continuing with studies you wouldnt qualify for home fees, loans etc as there are qualifying residence periods in most countries.

A "little more complex" / "a lot more complex" - it's all a matter of personal goals, priorities, values, etc.

But, it is doable.

As much as I want out of the US, I intend to finish my degree at my current university because it's well-known and well respected in my field. So I'm getting my plan together and this is the first part of it.

Now that is definitely no fun! Go somewhere where you'll learn another language imo and see something different than America... (not to say UK isnt different, but definitely better countries to choose from imo).

For citizenship I am in the middle of doing what you want to do. My mother already got hers, as long as you can trace back to your great grandfather you're fine.

If you have money to spend I can refer you to the guy who is doing it for me, but obviously you can do the whole process yourself with no help as well.

edit: by the way, the process I went thru paying someone else to do it for me and my mother was basically email him sit back and do nothing. it seems there is a lot of work to do if you get all the paperwork together yourself to do it by reading other posts on this thread. so in my experience it has not been difficult to do.

MOST COUNTRIES are not ALL COUNTRIES. Also, even in countries where the national languages are other than English there are programs and entire universities that are in the English language. Do some poking around if you are interested and see for yourself.

cpa21, I didn't know that Italy had Universities with the US language, it makes sense as I am currently taking some online courses from a US Institute that are offered worldwide. I am going to look into this. Thanks for the info!

I could post links but it is against the rules. One university in Italy has gone 100% English in their academic programs. Other universities offer selected programs in English. Try googling Italian medical schools in English or the Polytechnic of Milan.

I'll do that, cpa21, just to get a general sense. Thanks for the info!
