Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has 48 Graduate Admissions Programs 2020 for  international and local students to pursue graduate study.

MIT offers a wide range of degrees and programs. All graduate students, whether or not they are participating in an interdepartmental program, must have a primary affiliation with and be registered in a single department. Every applicant accepted by MIT is admitted through one of the graduate departments. MIT has a number of established interdepartmental programs, and there are many more opportunities for students to arrange interdepartmental programs with interested faculty members.

All MIT graduate degree programs have residency requirements, which reflect academic terms (excluding summer). Some degrees also require completion of an acceptable thesis prepared in residence at MIT, unless special permission is granted for part of the thesis work to be accomplished elsewhere. Other degrees require a pro-seminar or capstone experience.

Applicants to the Linguistics Program should include copies of one or more research papers or other written work relevant to their application. These papers need not necessarily be about linguistics, but they should demonstrate an applicant’s ability to pursue serious scholarly inquiry. Submitting more than one piece of work is especially appropriate for applicants with research experience in multiple relevant areas. Papers, research reports, theses, or insightful solutions to problem sets are all helpful in assessing an application. At least one of the writing samples should be written in English, but submissions in other languages can sometimes also be reviewed. Please try to limit your writing sample to a maximum of 100 pages
in total (less is fully acceptable). If this is impossible (for example, because you wish to include a lengthy undergraduate thesis), please indicate particular sections that you consider especially interesting or representative.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is a world-renowned educational institution located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Institute was incorporated on April 10, 1861. MIT community includes more than 11,000 employees, 11,000 students, and 1,000 faculty members.

Costs & Funding

Individual academic departments provide most of the financial support for MIT graduate students, and aid amounts vary significantly among disciplines. Financial support may take the form of research assistantships, instructor and teaching assistantships, fellowships, traineeships, scholarships, grants, and/or other forms of employment, such as working as a resident tutor in an undergraduate residence. Most forms of graduate support are granted for merit, while others are granted for financial need or a combination of merit and need.

Applying for Financial Aid

Applicants are considered for awards after they have been accepted into a graduate program. There is no separate application for financial aid prior to admission.  Currently enrolled graduate students seeking financial support should consult with their departmental office or visit Student Financial Services.

International Applicants

The application and admission process for international applicants is the same as it is for domestic applicants with the exception of a language requirement. All departments at MIT require a comprehensive knowledge of the English language. However, each department has its own language requirements and policies. The immigration process is addressed after a formal offer of admission is provided by the admitting department.

Passports and Entry Requirements

To enter the United States, each international student admitted to the Institute needs a passport issued by his or her government. Students must also visit US embassies or consulates in their home countries to be issued student visas, which will enable them to enter the United States. Students must present a certificate of eligibility (Form I-20 or Form DS-2019) with the supporting financial documentation when they apply for their visas. 

The International Students Office at MIT will send the required document to all admitted students who provide evidence of sufficient funds to meet the estimated costs and of adequate English language proficiency. It is important to note that the validity of the visa does not indicate how long a student may remain in the United States; this determination will be made by the Immigration Service at the port of entry. Canadians do not need student visas; instead, they may obtain the appropriate immigration status at the port of entry to the United States by showing proof of citizenship and the Certificate of Eligibility.

Visa Options

Students admitted to MIT may choose between two visas: the F-1 (student visa) and J-1 (exchange visitor visa). Individuals on any other non-immigrant visa will be unable to register in a program of studies at MIT. For More Info, Visit the International Applicants page.

Good Luck!
