In the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield, we are internationally recognised for our groundbreaking research. New international students join our degree programmes every year. Through the University of Sheffield International College we have been able to offer alternative routes to studying animal and plant sciences at the University of Sheffield. Undergraduate students on our biology programmes also have the chance to spend a year of their degree studying the subject in Australia, Canada or the USA, for a truly global experience.
This international perspective means we can look at the biggest challenges in biology from lots of different angles, and work with researchers around the world on finding solutions. Our students meet scientists from lots of different backgrounds, and graduate into the global workforce with a range of experiences that employers are looking for.
