Direct Exchange Abroad Programs

MICA administers international exchange programs in numerous countries around the world, providing MICA students the opportunity to learn and work abroad alongside local students and faculty.

Students on exchange programs are fully immersed in the host school and culture and can experience new ways of studying and living. Exchange programs require a great deal of independence and motivation, as study is often highly self-directed and living arrangements and extracurricular activities are often the student's responsibility. Note that most programs have a limit on the maximum number of students who may be on exchange in any given semester; plan to select a study abroad/affiliated program as a second choice in case your first-choice exchange program is full or unavailable.
