Assembling the pieces of nature’s puzzle of global environmental and medical challenges requires a dedicated scientific approach. Taking your biological sciences studies abroad means the opportunity to investigate the anatomy of cancer at the biochemical level in Korea, discover what chemicals are used by organisms to produce hormones in the Netherlands, or chart the genetic changes of leopards in South Africa.

Within three months in Queensland, I was able to conduct two full research projects on North Stradbroke Island in Moreton Bay and Heron Island in the southern Great Barrier Reef. Australia could not have come at a more perfect time in my personal and educational life. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity.
I have never had the experience of learning something in the classroom and then seeing it firsthand every single day. Knowledge never came as easily or stuck with me as it did in Australia. I am now working on publishing another scientific paper. My confidence in myself and my ability is multitudes higher since returning from my study abroad experience.
