BIOCOMUK18 is an immersive, 2-week study abroad opportunity in London, co-sponsored by the Biology and Communication Arts departments. With a wide variety of course offerings—from general core, to BA core, to specific major courses—students from various areas of study can join in a lifetime opportunity to live and study in the UK in the Summer of 2018.
A June Term 2018 study abroad opportunity, BIOCOMUK18 will start with 1-2 weeks of classes on the Jackson campus, then we will fly to London’s Heathrow airport on June 2nd, where we begin our adventures in the UK. We will be staying for 10 days in the heart of London, near the King’s Cross station, and taking a wide variety of excursions across the city including the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, and the Trooping the Colour at Buckingham Palace. The trip also includes excursions into the surrounding area, including Oxford and Leavesden (Home of the Harry Potter Studio Tour).
After our time in London, COM and BIO classes will split up, traveling by train throughout the UK on our way to Edinburgh, Scotland. The COM classes will travel Northwest, making stops in Manchester and Bradford. The BIO classes will travel Northeast, making stops in Cambridge and Norwich. The classes will reunite to explore Edinburgh, including the Royal Mile, the Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish Highlands. After 4 days in Scotland, we will return home on June 16th.
We hope you’ll join us on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. We will be hosting information sharing meetings throughout the Fall semester, providing additional details. If you are interested in finding out more about BIOCOMUK18, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
