Studying in Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea is a small beautiful country in Central Africa. The country comprises a mainland and five inhabited islands that are home to several endangered primate species making it a great place to study wildlife conservation. The presence of these endangered species has seen several top universities establish semester abroad programs in Equatorial Guinea.

One such program operates in collaboration between Drexel University, Universidad Nacional de Guinea Ecuatorial and the Bioko Biodiversity protection program. This hybrid program brings students to study various species on Bioko Island. The program involves four to six weeks of fieldwork and six weeks at the university in Equatorial Guinea, in total, the program incorporates five courses all-transferable as credits to NC state university.

Arcadia University also offers a similar biodiversity program aimed at facilitating primate research for students. The interest in the endangered primate species of Equatorial Guinea arises due to the general global ecological and conservation interests as well as the effects of the illegal game meat industry. Students in this program typically spend three weeks on Bioko documenting population levels and assessing the effects of game hunting and natural conditions on the primates.

For prospective students and those considering study abroad programs, there are several grants and scholarships to support interested students. Students who plan to study abroad in whatever discipline stand to benefit from exposure to new cultures and environments that adds a very essential global perspective to learning. As the world becomes increasingly inter-connected, such a perception may be crucial to performance in the near future.
