Description:Our four-year degree programme follows the structure of the BSc Biological Sciences while giving you the opportunity to spend your third year on an industrial placement across the breadth of biology.

Your placement could be in the UK or abroad. Recent students have been to Poland, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands.

A year in industry makes an invaluable addition to your scientific knowledge and skills, increasing your employability and giving you the chance to put your first two years of learning into practice.
