Biology with Placement Year - University of Sheffield

Our five-year MBiolSci with Placement Year allows you to do a year-long, paid work placement between your second and third year. It also includes a year of advanced research training and upgrades your degree to Master of Biological Science. This option is excellent preparation for careers in research, consulting and government. You'll pay reduced fees for the year you're on placement. You'll also have regular contact with your tutor and all the support you need from the University. We have a dedicated tutor to help you find a placement, and our Careers Service is on hand to offer support and advice. This course focuses on whole-organism biology. Specialist modules cover animal behaviour, evolutionary biology, ecology, genetics, climate change and molecular biology. Other options include biology and ethics, biotechnology and food, reproduction, genetics and genomics. You can also take modules in biomedical science, molecular and microbiology, even philosophy. We run optional field courses in the Peak District National Park, Anglesey, Ireland, Arctic Sweden, the Mediterranean and the tropical rainforest in Borneo.
