About Human Biology at Sheffield Hallam University

The course is built around two core themes, physiology and cell biology. In the first year, you gain a fundamental understanding of key areas of human biology, including molecular biology, human genetics and immunology. You build on this knowledge using case studies that examine topics in depth, such as how the body copes in extreme environments or with ageing. A strong theme of professional development is also embedded in the course to enhance your growth as a scientist and improve your employability. We offer a fully supported paid work placement in year three, which allows you to develop your skills and makes you more attractive to potential employers. Our national and multinational placement partners include * GlaxoSmithKline * AstraZeneca * Pfizer Limited * The Welcome Trust Sanger Institute, Cambridge * biotechnology industries. Placements typically pay between £8,000 and £17,000 per year. You can then combine all the skills and knowledge you have gained by completing a major research project. This is usually completed in our laboratories with the guidance of an academic supervisor. Sometimes it can be carried out at your placement organisation. Most of our teaching staff are active in our internationally recognised Biomedical Research Centre (BMRC). This allows us to feed scientific developments directly into our courses. We constantly review course content, including the comprehensive practical laboratory programme, to keep abreast of scientific developments.
