Student Opportunities and Resources

Study Abroad and Away

Miami consistently ranks among the top universities in the nation for the number of students studying abroad. No matter your major, you're welcome to join the more than 1,500 Miami students each year who earn academic credit through study abroad. Students need to fully grasp the global nature of today's economy, politics, and cultures. Living and learning abroad is a great way to do that.

The Center for Career Exploration and Success

Known as the CES, our career center serves students with a mission to put them on their ideal path for professional excellence. Here, you can connect with dedicated career advisors and fellow students pursuing similar tracks and professions; you can immerse yourself in information about compelling industries and roles; and you can prepare for life in the work force with interview coaching, career assessments, recruiting tools and more.
