Learn more with less stress

At MIU you’re never juggling 4-5 classes, homework, and finals at once. Instead, you’re fully immersed in only one subject each month.

This is immensely popular with our students because they naturally learn more, and it eliminates the stress of studying multiple subjects at once. And there’s never a finals week!
