Complete laboratory coursework and spend your summer abroad

On the Pre-Health Summer Program, you’ll combine the experience of being abroad with essential laboratory science course requirements toward your pre-health degree. 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. You’ll choose two laboratory-based courses from a choice of four, each worth 4 credits, all while spending your summer in London—one of the world’s most dynamic, multicultural, and historic capital cities. If you plan to pursue a career in healthcare, this is a great program option.

  • You’ll take your laboratory-based chemistry and biology courses using the lab space at the Birkbeck University of London, and you’ll be taught by an Arcadia University instructor.

  • You’ll be able to complete a discipline specific Co-curricular Learning Certificate (CLC) as part of the experiential education component to this program. These CLC opportunities include considering the role of the National Health Service and how the various constituent communities, such as immigrants and veterans, interact with a socialized health care system—or, design your own CLC with the help of our Arcadia London Center staff!

  • There is a semester program that includes coursework from our prestigious partner university, Queen Mary University of London.
