Investigate Department-Based Study-Abroad Programs

Several MIT departments offer exciting exchange program opportunities:

Course 3 Exchange at the University of Oxford (UK)

Since 1996, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has sponsored an undergraduate exchange with their counterpart materials department in Oxford. Course 3 students can apply to attend Oxford in the spring semester of their junior year (which equates to the Hilary and Trinity terms at Oxford), or the fall semester of the their senior year (which equates to the Michaelmas term at Oxford). MIT students are considered affiliated students while at Oxford and live in one of the colleges. For more information, contact Professor Linn Hobbs.

Course 4 Exchanges at Delft University of Technology (Netherlands) or the University of Hong Kong

The Department of Architecture offers two exciting study abroad options for qualified students. BSAD Architecture Design students enroll in an advanced-level studio at Delft University or the University of Hong Kong during the first term of their senior year. Learn more about eligibility for these exchanges and how to apply. For more information, contact Renee Caso.

Course 16 Exchange at the University of Pretoria (South Africa)

In 2010, two students from the University of Pretoria came to MIT to study aeronautics/astronautics through this new exchange program. With proper planning, Course 16 juniors can study at the University of Pretoria during either the fall or spring terms. For more information, contact Professor Wesley Harris.

Course 17 Exchange at Sciences Po (France)

The Department of Political Science has recently started an exchange program with Sciences Po in Paris, France. For more information, contact the Global Education team.
