ABOUT

Course description

Spend your second year studying biology at another top university in the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore or Hong Kong. Your fourth year is devoted to a major research project in the lab or in the field, where you’ll work alongside our world-leading academics. Your year abroad counts towards your final grade and allows you to gain international experience without extending your degree. You’ll even pay reduced fees for the year you’re abroad.

This course offers you the flexibility to discover what kind of biologist you want to be. Whether your interests lie in organisms and the environment, biomedicine, or the molecular biosciences, or span all three, from your first year you’ll have the freedom to choose the topics you want to study across the breadth of biology, including:

  • biochemistry
  • microbiology
  • genetics
  • molecular and cell biology
  • physiology and pharmacology
  • neuroscience
  • stem cells and development
  • pathobiology
  • evolution
  • zoology
  • animal behaviour
  • plant science
  • ecology and conservation
  • global change and sustainability

You’ll learn about these subjects in lectures, practicals, workshops and field trips to zoos, aquaria and wildlife reserves.

As you progress through your degree you’ll explore your chosen topics in greater depth, specialising in one area or keeping a broad overview across the biosciences. You’ll learn the core practical laboratory skills that are used across biology including microscopy, cell culturing and DNA preparation so no matter what modules you choose to study, you’ll be ready to address your own research questions. You’ll also learn problem solving, communication skills, critical evaluation and data analysis – key transferable skills that make biology graduates very attractive to employers.

We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge too. You’ll have the chance to carry out your own research projects in the lab, using the latest cutting-edge equipment to analyse stem cells, sequence DNA and study proteins and enzymes.

You might choose to do field research projects in the Peak District National Park, or to embark on an ecology field course in the UK or abroad. Or you can make the most of our links with the NHS, completing research in conjunction with the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. You can even choose to combine these areas.

Biology at Sheffield is all about enabling you to study what you’re passionate about. From genes and molecules, to organ systems and behaviour, biodiversity and ecosystems and everything in between, your personal tutor will support you to tailor your degree to your interests and career goals.

If you want to study this course but don’t meet the entry requirements our Biosciences (with Foundation Year) could be for you. After successfully completing the one year programme, you’ll progress onto the first year of one of our bioscience degrees.

Modules

A selection of modules are available each year – some examples are below. There may be changes before you start your course. 

 

In your first year you’ll spend your first week conducting a biology project, learning how we do science in Sheffield and getting to know your fellow students. Throughout the year, you’ll maintain a broad overview of bioscience whilst studying topics of your choice such as biodiversity, sustainability and climate change, cell and molecular biology, genetics and biochemistry, and biomedicine, human health and disease. 

You’ll also develop practical skills in the lab, ranging from microscopy, electrophysiology and DNA analyses, to regular field trips to zoos, aquariums and nature reserves, depending on the modules you choose. You’ll have lectures and take part in small group tutorials where you’ll enhance your writing, data analysis and presentation skills, develop employability skills and learn about the latest research findings from our world-leading academics.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.

accommodation

The international undergraduate and postgraduate students at this university can use different types of accommodation options and live in a safe and vibrant environment to focus entirely on their studies and get the best result, also the students can use the cafes and bars gyms, and other living facilities, on the other hand, they can have an accommodation tour and Sheffield city tour to become familiar with their living environment and make the most suitable decision, as we said, this university offers various accommodation options with different fees like £6,782.58 to £10,210.62 for a rental place in the city for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and they can choose to have a private or shared room.

After Graduation

The international students can work up to 20 hours in part-time jobs in the UK, however, they must refer to their visa to see whether they have study and work permits or not, we recommend you to focus only on your education to get the best results and be able to find the most suitable jobs in the UK or the global market right after graduation, on the other hand, if the international applicants need extra financial help to pay for their tuition fee, living, and study expenses, they can find part-time jobs under some conditions, also if the students find related jobs to their educational fields (with the help of the university), they will obtain more real experience and skills aside from the theoretical knowledge that they acquire during their study period.
