Coral Gables is located in southwest of Miami Downtown. The city got boomed during 1920’s because of its calmness and people from Miami shifted there as a cheaper and calmer option which is not far from Miami’s fun. The city does not have much to offer, it has a low population which means the city provides peace. All the beauty that city has to offer is man-made and the best part if it’s festivals. If you are in Miami you are going to enjoy the ‘FestaDe Miami’ for sure. As per a student’s point of view it is a great location to study at as the entertainment sector called ‘Miami’ is not far from the campus and there is a lot of peace within the settlements around the university.
Within the diameters of this small city of lies a university of 260 acres. This is not an enormous area as per that of a university but you wouldn’t feel congested either. The class rooms are small but due to an average enrollment you wouldn’t feel that you are in an extremely populated school. The school has good amount of green space and there is a theatre for students who have a heart for art. If you are staying anywhere close to Miami, you would have to pay a fortune even for breathing its air.
The housing cost of in-campus settlements is 7,500 US$ for a year and meal plan can cost between 5,000 to 5,500 US$ for a year.
Faculty at UM is selected on the basis of their stardom and experience. Most times they choose a faculty who has taught a famous person and has a picture with a signed autograph with them. There have been few faculties at UM who do not even speak proper English. The most basic problem every student faces is that whenever they enter a class the teacher expects the student to know everything that is simpler so they ignore the base of the syllabus and jump on the difficult parts.
Jobs and placements
The university has a placement program that’s held every year immediately after your final exams. The program has a procedure which includes an examination for which you’d have to prepare a syllabus. There are only few students selected for this exam which have attained a pretty good status for themselves in front of teachers and in case of grades.
