Study Abroad Program
Junior Year Abroad Exchange Program: Studies in England
The University of Toledo has a formal exchange program with the University of Salford in England (near Manchester). Since 1984, more than 200 UT students have gone to Salford and almost 200 Salford students have come to UT. Selected UT students may spend their junior year at Salford where they take the equivalent of all their upper division biology courses. In addition, students participate in a week-long residential marine biology field course in Wales. Students also have the opportunity to travel through the UK and Europe. Eligibility is based on scholastic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.2 required. Details are available on the UT-Salford Exchange site. It is important to see the Departmental Exchange Program Advisor (Dr. Brian Ashburner) in spring of your freshman year to get a clear picture of the prerequisites in order to create a plan of study to best accommodate a year abroad. Students who have participated in the exchange program have excellent placement records for medical and graduate school after graduation. Recent students have gone to Stanford, University of Michigan, Case Western Reserve, George Washington University, John Hopkins, University of Cincinnati, University of Chicago, University of Utah and OSU medical/dental/veterinary and MD/PhD programs.
