Princeton Program: Oxford-Princeton Exchange in Biochemistry
Students must have strong academic records and good experience in laboratory research and have completed either MOL 342 or MOL 345 in their sophomore year.
Applications are available in the Office of International Programs and can be sent to you electronically if requested. The deadline for applications is February 6, 2015.
Completed applications must be submitted to the Office of International Programs and consist of the following:
- Completed application form (doc.) and essay;
- One letter of recommendation from a Princeton faculty member who has taught you (in a sealed envelope with the recommender’s signature across the flap);
- Official transcript from the Registrar’s Office.
Princeton will forward the most competitive applications to Oxford. Students who are admitted have two weeks to accept the offer. A non-refundable deposit of $1,000 will be required to secure a place. This deposit will be applied to tuition.
In addition to a program application, students must also complete the Princeton Study Abroad Course Approval Form, which is due on November 1 for spring programs and on May 1 for fall programs. This form is reviewed by the Committee on Examinations and Standing, which grants final approval to participate in the program. Students who meet the university eligibility requirements to study abroad and who have the support of their department are normally approved by the Committee.
