( St. Andrews )

ALL STUDENTS should contact the NBB office to confirm the appropriateness of their course selections and have NBB sign off on your CIPA form.

http://www.cipa.emory.edu

(Note: 1) All courses may not be offered in any academic year. 2) No course less than 15 credits will count as an NBB elective except the yearlong sequence of PS3021 (10 credits) and PS3022 (10 credits) which when combined will equal one elective. 3) Per CIPA there must be a minimum of 60 credits (equals 16 credits at Emory) per semester to count as a full load.)

Emory NBB has developed an exchange program with Scotland's University of St. Andrews. The following courses have been pre-approved for NBB students enrolled at St. Andrews. More information about the program will be added to this website in the near future.

 

NBB Studies in Melbourne

 

New! A program that has been designed specifically for YOU (Emory Biology, Chemistry, and NBB students in their junior or senior year who are interested in spending a semester abroad in Melbourne, Australia)!    As a student on the program, you will undertake a research-focused study abroad experience while also taking biology, neuroscience, or chemistry courses at the University of Melbourne; so, you won’t fall behind in your progress towards your Emory major. 

Want to Know the Timeline? The program is a semester-long program and will be open every Fall and Spring (Application deadline for Fall is March 1st; October 1st deadline for Spring).  The academic year at the University of Melbourne is split into two semesters: Semester 1 runs from early February to mid June; Semester 2 runs from early July to Mid November.

Eligibility Requirements: A minimum 3.3 GPA, good academic standing, declared science major, rising junior status.
At least one semester or summer of research experience with a research group in Biology, NBB, or Chemistry; two letters of recommendation- one from the research advisor and one from a professor in the major.

Academic Focus: The University of Melbourne program is designed for Biology, Chemistry, and NBB students who wish to experience life in Australia while also undertaking a research-focused study abroad experience. Aside from research, students in this program will be taking biology, neuroscience, or chemistry courses to fulfill Emory major requirements.
**If you are not interested in doing research or do not have research experience, but are interested in studying at University of Melbourne or other locations in Australia, please view CIPA’s information for the IFSA-Butler programs in Australia.

Courses: Students have access to a wide range of course offered at UOM at the undergraduate level.
Students on the UOM program MUST enroll in one research course, plus one or more science lecture courses, and additional elective courses from any discipline to complete 15-16 U.S. credit hours (generally a total of four courses).

Pre-med students should also verify that chosen courses taken abroad will satisfy the admission requirements of chosen medical schools.

 

 

Examples of course equivalencies that have been approved by the Biology and Chemistry Departments and the NBB Program are listed below. Please note: All NBB applicants must receive a signature from Dr. Paul Lennard in order to participate on the program.
