We encourage our students to take advantage of the University of St. Thomas's great study abroad program. In the past two years, four of our majors spent eye-opening semesters studying physics in Australia, England and Ireland.
Matt Jungwirth spent the spring semester of his junior year, studying in London, England.
"I chose Queen Mary College because I was able to fully immerse myself into British academia by living and taking classes with British students. One of these classes was Quantum Mechanics, where I was the only American student, but I found out that physics is the same no matter which side of the pond the lecture takes place. Outside of class, I joined the rugby team and even played in two games. Plenty of time, though, was left for traveling Europe and relaxing at the local pub. All in all, it was an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone."
