We understand that choosing to attend a graduate program in another country is a tremendously important and challenging decision. We are eager to answer any questions that you may have about our program, connect you to student resources that support success, and share additional program-related activities that help build our cohesive international community of students studying abroad.
Miami University offers many resources for the more than 2,000 international graduate students from nearly 70 countries that attend Miami. The Office of International Students and Scholars Services (ISSS) provides guidance to admitted students. Highly trained advisers help students with immigration regulations and procedures, visa matters, health insurance, and academic and personal counseling.
ISSS also connects students with additional services and campus resources, as well as conducts a new student orientation program. Orientation is designed to help new Miami students learn more about academic life, register for courses, become acquainted with campus and community resources, and meet other new international and domestic students at Miami University!
In addition to academic experiences, our students participate in a variety of cultural experiences too. Groups of students visit large cities like Columbus, Ohio, Chicago, Illinois, and Washington, D.C. These trips allow students to experience American institutions and practices, as well as interact with local students and educators. Students also engage in many fun, recreational activities.
Miami University offers over 600 student clubs and organizations. The following student organizations are just a few examples of international-related student organizations on campus:
The weather in Oxford averages 24°C from June to August, 1.1°C from December to February. Oxford is only about 35 miles north of Cincinnati, Ohio—meaning you can catch a professional baseball game, visit museums with world-class exhibits, and go to concerts, shows, boutiques, and mega-marts.
The Butler County Regional Transit Authority (BCRTA) provides transportation around campus and to Oxford stores and apartment complexes. BCRTA also provides airport shuttles to the nearest major airports in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio – both an hour from campus. There are also taxi services and free ride-share options too.
