What will I learn?

The Human Biology with Professional Placement MSci course offers the opportunity to combine an academic degree course with a full year of professional training in a non-University setting.Human biology is crucial to the continual development of the fields of medicine, sports science, nutrition, fertility and other areas. The course builds on the content and structure of the corresponding 3-year BSc Human Biology course, but it includes as a key feature the placement between second and final year. The syllabus promotes the development of a broad and systematic understanding of biological principles, and the skills to place this understanding in the context of the human condition. You will be able to tailor your course to match your own interests and goals, and, in addition to the project in industry, join one of our research groups in the final year to work on a project linked to current research in the School.The flexible modular course structure allows students in the second and final year to tailor their programme of study to individual interests and ambitions. The course particularly emphasises practical training and research skills, as well as the development of transferable skills that can be deployed in a wide range of professional settings.This programme has been accredited by the Royal Society of Biology following an independent and rigorous assessment. Advanced Degree accreditation highlights the degrees that have the potential to educate the life science leaders and innovators of the future.
