MIT is widely known as one of the best universities in the world and it currently holds first position in the 2022 QS World University Rankings, vs Universitat de Barcelona which is #168.
MIT is a nerve-centre of high-impact research and has been at the heart of cutting-edge breakthroughs across disciplines such as Engineering, Computer Science and Maths.
Attend MIT and you will have the chance to study under some of the most acclaimed professors in the world. One of its most famous current faculty members is linguist and activist Noam Chomsky, who is one of the most cited scholars of all time.
MIT's educational philosophy 'mens et manus' reinforces its emphasis on practical as well as conceptual understanding. Any MIT student will tell you that they spend just as much time in intense lab classes as they do learning theory!
MIT's undergraduate student body is 4,600; approximately half the size of Cambridge University's. This means that students enjoy small class sizes and intensive teaching.
There is a stronger emphasis on extracurriculars at MIT than many people realise and it is home to many passionate artists, musicians and athletes. With many clubs available to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice!
