This is a 4 year program for most students, including your year in placement.
Your first year in the University of East Anglia’s Biological Sciences BSc program will be spent studying a set of core modules. These will give you a rock-solid basis in the sciences generally, and allow you to make informed decisions about your eventual specialisation.
You will now have access to a wide range of elective modules. Choose wisely, as these will begin to define your area (or areas) of specialisation. In fact, they can determine a great many things about your later career.
Year 3 (Placement):
Your third year will be spent in an arranged, paid placement in an appropriate company either in the UK or abroad. UEA has a wide network of industry contacts and alumni, and will help you to find a placement that suits your intellectual and career needs very well.
In your final year, you will focus on specific biological issues which relate to your chosen specialisation. You will also be responsible for delivering an independent research project, under the guidance and supervision of the academic staff.
