All degree programmes offered by the School of Medical Sciences, offer the opportunity for students to undertake a year's industrial placement.
Students can spend the fourth year of their degree in paid employment and graduate after five years with an MSci (an undergraduate Masters degree) instead of a BSc.
Placements vary considerably but in general terms, students are placed in an industrial, commercial or research environment where they will obtain a breadth of practical experience to complement their degree programme.
