Whether it’s interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.
With some planning, biochemistry majors can travel abroad and still graduate on time. While the Center for Global Educations offers abroad programs on six continents, many biochemistry students find themselves studying abroad in Bath, England; Copenhagen, Denmark or Australia and New Zealand. We have also had faculty sponsor programs in Ecuador and Peru.
This program is based in the beautiful 18th century city of Bath, where students are integrated into British culture through living in the city, having membership in the University of Bath Student Union, and through volunteer and internship opportunities. This program incorporates a week-long residency at University College, Oxford University, and an extended excursion to Stratford-upon-Avon.
As part of the Denmark program, students will study in Copenhagen through the country’s International Study Program. Students select from more than 70 courses, all taught in English, of particular interest to student studying biology or pre-health.
Hobart and William Smith Colleges maintain an exchange program at James Cook University, a large research university, ranked among the best in Australia. JCU is spread over three campuses in northern Queensland, with most students studying in either Townsville or Cairns. Townsville is the administrative hub for northern Queensland and a stepping off point for the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is a coastal city in the rainforest region. With many international students studying at JCU, you will experience a unique international and cross-cultural learning environment on either campus, sharing the community with students from more than 100 countries.
