Learn more with less stress

At MUM, students learn more with less stress through the block system.

In the block system, you’ll be taking only one full time-course per month. When you take studio classes, you’ll be in the studio creating art every day without the distraction of other courses.

You’ll also enjoy a healthy routine, single-living dorm rooms, and organic vegetarian meals.
