    Course Summary

    The University of Sheffield’s MEng in Bioengineering aims to produce the engineers who will define the future of medicine and healthcare. After studying the basics, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in either:

    • Biomanufacturing
    • Biomaterials Science and Tissue Engineering
    • Medical Devices and Systems
    • Biomedical Engineering

    You’ll also gain critical real world experience with a year’s paid placement. This year will give you important professional skills, as well as experience with the complexities of Bioengineering on a practical, commercial scale.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    This MEng program typically requires applicants to have achieved 3 A Levels of AAA or better, or one of a number of equivalent academic certifications. One of those A Levels must be in Mathematics and at least one more in a Science.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated by an IELTS score of 6.5 or better overall, with no less than 6.0 in any one component.

    International students must also have earned a degree that is the rough equivalent of that required for UK and EU students. The requirements can be found here.
