Course summary

On this course you’ll spend your third year studying biomedical science at another top university in Europe, or a country such as the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore or Hong Kong. While abroad, you'll have the freedom to study both biomedical science and other subjects at your host university, while also experiencing life in another part of the world. You'll pay reduced fees for the year you're abroad.During your time at Sheffield you’ll cover everything from human physiology and pharmacology, to molecular and cell biology. You’ll study the basis of diseases such as coronavirus and cancer, and tackle challenges such as hearing loss. You’ll explore therapies that use stem cell technology, and discover how we develop drug treatments for inflammatory disease. We're proud to be one of only a few universities in the UK to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to perform full body cadaveric dissection, providing you with an excellent foundation for understanding human physiology and developmental biology.From your first year you’ll study a range of biomedical science modules, with the freedom to explore optional topics from across the biosciences, such as genetics, microbiology, evolution and biochemistry. This flexibility allows you to study biomedical science in greater depth, broaden your interests or switch to another biosciences degree programme. No matter what modules you choose to study, you’ll develop the practical skills that make our graduates attractive to employers, including project management, problem solving, communication skills and data analysis.We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge. You’ll be in the lab completing in-depth practicals, learning about the human body through cadaveric dissection and sharing your knowledge through peer assisted study sessions.As you progress through your degree you’ll be able to specialise in key areas such as stem cells and cancer, neuroscience, physiology, pharmacology and developmental and cell biology. Whichever your specialism, your personal tutor will support you to tailor your degree to your interests and career goals.
