You spend the second year at a major university in the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia Singapore or Hong Kong, gaining first-hand knowledge of ecosystems and organisms in your chosen region. You don't add a year to your degree to study abroad and you have reduced tuition fees during that year.
Back in Sheffield for your third year, you'll build on what you've learned and start to prepare for the final year.
Your fourth year involves an extensive, individual research project. You'll work one-to-one with a member of academic staff. The project will develop your in-depth knowledge and teach you more skills than you could learn on a three-year course. It's excellent preparation for a research-related career or higher degree.
If you want to study biology, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Biosciences with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
