International Partnerships

We have several preparatory programs designed to prepare you for college success in the U.S.A.

Massachusetts International Academy (MAIA)
MAIA is a one-year, college preparatory residential program located in a suburb of Boston. With the support of our university, UMass Boston professors provide intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) training and other courses to prepare you for university-level coursework in English.

Global Student Success Program
Although many international students apply directly to UMass Boston, some candidates may not qualify for direct entry or prefer a more supportive study environment. For those candidates we offer this alternative pathway.

The Academy at Harvard Square
UMass Boston Campusprep Enrichment (UBCE) Program, offered in partnership with The Academy at Harvard Square (TAHS), is a special program committed to effectively prepare foreign students for undergraduate study at UMass Boston. The academy is an educational institution located in Harvard Square.

Tsinghua University
Study English on the Tsinghua University campus in Beijing. You’ll prepare for the IELTS English proficiency exam, be introduced to U.S.-style higher education, receive expert help with the U.S. application process, and obtain a visa to study abroad. This English Language Program offers nine months of college preparation.
