Learn more with less stress Why is the block system so popular with our students?

  1. At MIU you never juggle 4-5 classes and homework at once.
  2. Instead, you’re immersed in only one full-time course each month. This is the block system.
  3. The block system allows you to easily learn more with less stress. And there’s no finals week!
