At MUM you take one full-time course each month, instead of juggling 4-5 subjects at once. It’s called the block system, and we have found that it has the benefits listed in the table below. It also improves creative focus and makes it easier for students to collaborate on projects with their peers, since it simplifies everyone’s schedules.
|Stress of homework and exams from multiple classes.||Learn more with less stress.|
|Scatter your attention over 4-5 subjects.||Immerse yourself in your projects.|
|Coursework is always hanging over your head -- all semester long.||Get a 3-day weekend between each course with no classes or homework. (Use this time to polish your portfolio or just relax.)|
