Outbound Programs 

Miriam College offers a unique opportunity for young women to experience the world outside of the classroom --- to witness the diversity of cultures, to listen to the ideas of other peoples, and to learn from the realities of different societies. The goal is to operationalize the vision for our students, who are “rooted in Filipino culture and Asian traditi on” to embody the ideal of being “citi zens of the world”. The concretization of this vision is the basis for an insti tuti onalized program for internati onal student exchange and short-term internati onal programs.

The international education offerings of Miriam College are designed to provide opportunities for qualified undergraduate and graduate students to experience the culture and academic life of other countries. They are required to return to the Philippines at the end of the program and resume their studies at Miriam College. Qualified Miriam College students may participate in any of the following international programs:


  1. Junior Semester Abroad Program
    opens opportunities for students to spend a semester of their junior year in any of the partner schools of Miriam College. Students will enroll and pay their full tuiti on in Miriam College but will attend classes at the host university of their choice. The grades that they will earn will be sent back to Miriam College for credit.
  2. Junior Year Abroad Program
    provides students a chance to spend their junior year in any of the partner schools of Miriam College. Students will pay the tuiti on fee at the partner university.

Both programs entail students to pass through the application and screening processes at Miriam College and comply with all the requirements of the partner university (e.g. Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), student visa, health insurance, and others). The maximum unit load will be mutually determined by Miriam College and the partner university. The grades of the exchange students will be provided by the partner university and will be transmuted to the Miriam College grading system.

Roundtrip airfare, lodging and meals will be borne by the participant unless waived or provided by the host university under a special arrangement.
