    One more question. I originally started my degree in 2014. I've had 2-year break, so I'm going to graduate in 2020, or even in 2021 if my uni deems the differences between curricula are so big I ain't gonna make it (even if I could, they won't even let me try). How do put that on resume? Just put grad date or what?

    However, out of curiosity, what did they remove from the requirements?

    I didn't delve into much detail (it's easier to reverse engineer DirectX than to find info on my uni's wensite), but from what I've gathered so far, it's mostly compressing various multi-semester courses into single semester.

    This info may or may not be helpful, but I seem to be one of the only developers at my company with a 4-year CS degree. Most developers here have degrees in stuff like Electrical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, or something called Computer Engineering which is apparently somehow different from Computer Science.

    I took a handful of classes at a university, but I never went for a degree.

    In short - is 3.5-year BSc on foreign university much worse than 4-year BSc on foreign university? Will employers requiring 4-year degree have an issue with 3.5-year BSc?

    I don't think that distinction matters. With what I know of US universities (I may be wrong), there's a separate set of courses that happen during summers, which aren't required for any degree, so a 4 year degree is only really counting 9 of every 12 months.

    Same in Poland. Classes are October to June, split into 2 semesters. What I mean is the degree I was taking was shortened from 8 to 7 semesters.

    Now that I'm back in Poland, I wanted to resume my unfinished degree. But I just learned that they completely changed the structure of the courses, and what used to be 4-years is now 3.5-years. Which makes me question whether it's any good anymore. The only reason I'm taking it is so I can find job in USA (I have no problem finding one in Poland). When I was hunting for USA jobs, I noticed that many of them require, quote, "4-year degree in Computer Science or similar". Education in Poland works a bit different than in USA - for example, there's no such thing as associate, so bachelor is the lowest degree you can get except for no degree at all. Depending on school, Bachelor's takes 3 to 4 years, but it doesn't affect it's validity (3-year BSc is same as 4-year BSc for the purpose of enrolling for MSc and of looking good to potential employer). But it's not Poland we're talking about, but the USA.

    In short - is 3.5-year BSc on foreign university much worse than 4-year BSc on foreign university? Will employers requiring 4-year degree have an issue with 3.5-year BSc?

    I can only assume those forgeries are even worse.
