Cambridge-MIT Program offers academic, cultural opportunity


During the past six years, the Cambridge-MIT Undergraduate Student Exchange Program (CME) has provided MIT students with the opportunity to study at Cambridge University for a full year. The Cambridge-MIT Institute (CMI), a strategic alliance between MIT and Cambridge University, recently announced extending their financial support for this critical program for another year.

The ongoing support for CME is part of MIT's commitment to providing global educational opportunities for students. Daniel Hastings, Dean of Undergraduate Education, stressed the importance of CME as a global opportunity and explained that MIT is "committed to providing a stable base for this excellent program over the next several years."

CME is one of MIT's core programs that enable students to understand and to work with people from diverse nations and cultures.

In the 2007-2008 academic year, CME will enable 25 MIT students to benefit from a change in country, a change of culture as well as a difference in teaching and learning styles. CME participants are immersed in British culture and have easy, direct access to the rest of Europe and even part of Africa. At the same time, they are fully matriculated at Cambridge University and as such, they live and study side by side with Cambridge University students for the full academic year.

CME is administered by the Study Abroad and Distinguished Fellowships Office, which is part of the MIT Careers Office. For more information, please visit the Study Abroad website.
