I'm currently living abroad in japan and looking to start college online from an American university. The problem is that any biotech course I'm interested in requires a lab portion to be done physically. So is there anyway to complete a lab assignment, specifically a biology based one, at a foreign college? And if so would there be any catches like having to pay a fee?
Ask the American university, and look before you leap. If they are offering online programs, then it's their responsibility to provide a pathway for you to satisfy the degree requirements.
In my estimation, the odds that a Japanese university would be willing to supervise an American university's lab assignments are low; the odds that they would do it for free are lower still. You might be able to take entire lab-based courses at a Japanese university, and then apply for transfer credit.
Before enrolling in any online program I recommend that you first ask lots of questions and make sure that their program fits your needs.
Yes, it is possible.
My college advisor has a good impression on me. I graduated few years ago, but recently we make contact and start to collaborate on projects while I am still taking a full-time job. So from my humble experience, it is all about time management and trust from others on you. But I do keep this secret from my co-workers to avoid troubles.
It's possible depending on the collaboration you can make with the varsity that you want to run your lab sessions. And this can be done with the other help of the varsity that you are in enrolled in. So it's your duty to discuss with the management of your University so that you can be given legitimate papers for you to run lab operations in the other university.
