Hi, there!
April is shaping up to be a month of "looking ahead." One of the things we are most excited about is welcoming back our international students this fall, since many have been studying in their home countries for the entire 2020-21 year. We're planning for fall and winter study abroad, and we're celebrating the accomplishments and honors of Miami students and faculty who have made an impact both locally and internationally. Have a look, and be sure to follow us on social media for all the latest details.
Healthy Together protocols are followed at MacMillan Hall and across campus. Staff will continue to meet remotely with students via phone, Zoom or Google Meet.

An Internship in Luxembourg

Students have multiple ways to pursue internships in Luxembourg "beyond the Château walls", capitalizing on the network of relationships which MUDEC has built in Luxembourg since the program was founded in 1968. This semester, our MUDEC students have been completing internships both in-person and virtually. Consider an internship abroad to maximize your education abroad investment!
