Pre-Health Summer in London
This program is a great opportunity to set yourself apart as you continue your path toward a degree in pre-health or lab science. It combines the experience of being abroad with laboratory science course requirements toward your pre-health degree. A full semester program is also available.
- As an accredited U.S. university, Arcadia reports all your courses on an Arcadia University transcript, which can be presented, along with your home university record, to the AAMC.
- Spend your summer living and studying in the heart of London, one of Europe’s most dynamic, multi-cultural and historic capital cities.
- Arcadia's experienced staff will help you enjoy the unique aspects of London through our co-curricular learning opportunities designed specifically for students interested in a career in health sciences.
During this 8-week summer program you’ll choose two laboratory-based courses from a choice of four. Each is worth 4 credits.
These courses are taught by Arcadia faculty and are conducted in laboratory facilities at a British University. You’ll attend lectures 4 days a week, and participate in laboratory experiments 1 day a week.
