One Course Per Month
MUM students talk about the "Block system"
MUM uses the Block System — our students are fully immersed in one course per month, and then move on to the next course. The Block System is immensely popular with students here because they learn more and integrate knowledge more effectively, and it eliminates the stress of taking four or five subjects at once.
|Meaningful learning is difficult, because your attention is scattered among different subjects.||You take one course full-time each month, making learning more enjoyable and less stressful.|
|Stress of homework and exams in 4–5 subjects at once — all year long.||Between each 4-week course is an extended 3-day weekend, with no classes or homework|
|There is always work, and final exams, hanging over your head — all semester long||You learn more with less effort, allowing for lots of active and collaborative learning.|
