Biomedical Science with a Year in Industry

The Times Good University Guide has put Sheffield in the UK top 10 for biosciences every year since 2009. You'll study everything from the gene to whole body systems. We want you to graduate with a thorough understanding of the genetic and molecular processes that underpin the development, structure and function of the human body in health and disease. At Sheffield, you will find independence is encouraged. We expect you to think critically, to follow your interests and become a skilled researcher in your own right. Sheffield is one of the few UK universities where biomedical science students carry out human dissection, supervised by staff. This is an important part of your initial training. Spending a year on work placement extends your course to five years, so it takes commitment. But it gives you a distinct advantage in the jobs market. As well as earning a salary, you will make contacts and see first hand how knowledge is translated into practical applications. Graduates work in biomedical research, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. Some progress to postgraduate study in areas such as medicine. But there are other options. Students have also gone on to careers in the scientific civil service, software development and the NHS.
