Hopkins Year Oxford
St. Anne's College (Pre-Med Science)

Oxford - Premed Cohort
St. Anne's is one of Oxford’s largest colleges, with some 446 undergraduates and 300 graduates. The college's Fellows’ interests range across the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Physical and Medical Sciences. St Anne’s was founded on the principle that it integrated the values of the University with the world of its students: it is implacable in the pursuit of academic excellence, but does not see this as setting it apart from contemporary society. Rotunda 1
 

"My year at St. Anne’s taught me to be a thorough and inquisitive learner. Through each tutorial, I was pushed to explore topics beyond the surface level, which provided a rich and rewarding academic experience.”

-Samantha Halpern, Chemistry major

Courses and Credits

Students will complete an extended academic year that includes a September pre-session and the three terms at Oxford; Michaelmas (October to December), Hilary (January to March), and Trinity (April to June). Courses are taught in the rigorous tutorial system an come back with Hopkins course numbers and grades that factor into the Hopkins GPA, thereby satisfying U.S. medical school entry requirements. 

All participants are expected to have completed General Biology and Chemistry prior to participation. All participants will take Biological Chemistry, the Biochemistry Lab, and Advanced Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, along with Genetics, Medical Humanities, and Physiological Systems. Sophomore participants will also take Organic Chemistry while Junior participants will take Advanced Genetics and Molecular Biology. All students will have the opportunity to design and complete their own Literature Review Project on a topic of their own choosing. Both Sophomore and Junior participants should have room left to take 1-3 elective courses, which they can select from a list that includes Biophysical Chemistry and Spectroscopy, Structure and Function of Molecules, Metabolism and Metabolic Control, Bioenergetics, Biological Signals and Systems, Cancer Biology and Molecular Immunology, History of Science and Philosophy of Science. St. Anne's Ball 2013-14
 
These courses will be delivered according to the unique tutorial system, the hallmark of Oxford academic culture. You will typically attend an hour-long tutorial every week, or bi-weekly, for each class or paper you are studying. The sessions will consist of your tutor, you and 1-2 other students. It is a highly concentrated hour of discussion and debate, for which you will have prepared carefully in advance. For each of your tutorials you will be expected to independently prepare either an essay on a set topic, or a problem set (depending on the course), or another kind of assignment and you will discuss these during the tutorial. Your Tutor will generally provide you with a reading list or other guidance to help you get started. Your tutorials are supplemented by lectures, and sometimes group tutorials and/or laboratory practical classes, as appropriate, which are run by the University and will include students from across the University. ​You will be examined on the content of these lectures in exams called 'Collections' at the beginning of the next Oxford term, the grades for which can only help, not hinder, your overall grade.
