Year three

Welcome to year three. We hope you have an enjoyable and successful year.

Personal tutorials

Personal tutorials

Your personal tutor has a pastoral role and acts as your tutor for the whole of your time at University. They should be informed of any problems or difficulties you may be having, including health, disability, domestic, and personal problems which may affect your performance on the course or in your exams. Your Personal Tutor will also be able to provide references for you upon graduation.

Regular meetings with your Personal Tutor will be timetabled to take place three times per semester.

If you are struggling to get in touch with your Personal Tutor you must inform us by emailing biosupport@sheffield.ac.uk.

Attendance at all personal tutorials is compulsory.

You can find your Personal Tutor listed on myRecord under Course Information.

BEng Final Year Project

BEng Final Year Project

This final year project is an opportunity to take the lead on a specialised research project. You will build on the technical knowledge gained during your taught modules as you apply your experience and skills to a specific problem area.

Final year project

MEng Group Design Project

MEng Group Design Project

MEng students will work in teams on this project to tackle a challenging engineering problem.

The aim of the project is to give you the opportunity to apply and develop your knowledge and skills. A key part of this is working with your peers, giving you the opportunity to develop your team working skills.

You are expected to demonstrate a high level of initiative and independence on the project, as well as skills in creative and critical thinking, analysis, reflection, project management and communication.

The project is very different from many of your taught modules where the lecturer takes the lead in your learning. As a group, you will be expected to take the lead and the module will provide overall guidance and support.

Module choice

Online module choice

You will make your choice of elective by using the online module choice system which will be open from in May. You will receive an email from Registry Services when module choice goes live, which will tell you how to complete your module choice.

When completing module choice please ensure that:

  • You only enter modules that are included in the Elective that you wish to take (core modules will already be pre-loaded)
  • Your modules total 120 credits

Please note that module choice is not the same as registration. Once you have completed on-line module choice and provided that you pass your examinations and do not have a debt to the University, from mid July you will be able to formally register with the University for the next academic year via My Record in MUSE. You need to complete BOTH online module choice AND registration.

To help you make your choice please read more: Module Descriptions will be available shortly

Resit exams

There are no resit examinations in year three.

Year in Industry

Year in Industry

If you are on the Year in Industry course and will be spending year 4 on placement, you do not need to complete online module choice. The BIE390 Bioengineering Year in Industry module will be automatically added to your record. You do need to complete registration with the University at the end of July.
