A Classic American College Experience at Ole Miss

A campus filled with history and buzzing with activity, The University of Mississippi, affectionately known as Ole Miss, is the states flagship university. It is the place to be for international students who want a classic American college experience. The university is in Oxford, Mississippi, which is a small town with deep roots and a story to tell.

Students from more than 86 countries attend Ole Miss and many of them are enrolled in the Intensive English Program, which offers language courses from basic to advanced levels. The curriculum is designed to prepare participants to use English academically, socially, and professionally.

The university has a dedicated office of Global Engagement that ensures international students get the support they need while pursuing their studies and achieving their academic goals. The office partners with groups across the campus to enhance the global content of the English program and all university departments.

International students also appreciate the many opportunities for off-campus fun, as the university organizes field trips to nearby cities and attractions like Nashville, Memphis, and the home of local Blues music legends.
