Our students in the Zoology with Placement Year programme from University of Sheffield have found placements within industry with organisations such as GSK, Atkins Environmental Consulting and EMEC Ecology; with charities like the Wildlife Trusts, Newquay Zoo, and the Field Studies Council; or in government with the Environment Agency.
You could even apply your scientific knowledge and transferable skills within or outside of the bioscience industry in areas including market research, communications or business development.
- It's a great opportunity to test out a career path that you're considering and many students are offered a graduate level job at the end.
- You'll pay reduced fees for the year you're on placement and you'll still have the support you need from your tutor and the University.
