While in Boston, I had the opportunity to meet with the Study Abroad & Exchange Coordinator at the University of Massachusetts, Boston (UMB). UMB is one of ACU’s Exchange Partners.
UMB is located not far from the JFK/U Mass stop on the Red Line of the T. Upon leaving the station, free shuttle buses take you to the campus, which is about a 5 minute drive from the station. Likewise, these shuttles take you back to the station.
UMB offers lots of course areas including Nursing, Arts, and Business. The full course listing can be found on their website: http://www.umb.edu/.
For International Students, there is a lot of support available throughout your semester or year long stay. The Coordinator there told me about the activities that are on offer for Exchange students (BBQs, trips) and there are lots of opportunities available to meet fellow Exchange students that have come to Boston from all over the world.
If you’re interested in UMB, and want more info, please contact the ACU Study Abroad Office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications to study at UMB in Semester 2 2010 are open now! The deadline for applications is 1 March 2010...
