Adding an international experience can significantly enrich your learning and personal development. Science itself is an international pursuit; but aside from that many employers, whether business or government, value the knowledge of other cultures that study abroad brings. Of course, within large multinational businesses opportunities for those with a well-developed international perspective are multiplied.
Recognising this, the Faculty offers an International Bachelor of Science (iBSc) degree (with a major in Biology) that actually requires study in a second language and at least one term of study abroad. For more information, visit the International Bachelor Programs site.
But you can still study abroad for a term or more no matter what your program. York has partnership agreements for student exchange with many universities in other countries. Check out the Study Abroad Resources webpage, or visit the offices of York International.
York International is the office responsible for all things ‘international’, and offers programs that enrich the international experience of students, faculty, and the York University community. You can even do a paid internship abroad though the York International Internship Program! Visit the YIIP site.
