hi! I only attended the politics talk but it was the best talk I've seen so far with 3 professors/teaching staff and 2 students all giving really good information about the course and Sheffield as a whole. Sheffield, like liverpool, feels like a really friendly place to live and cheap for students too. Sheffield is definitely pretty hilly but the main campus (at least where I was) feels a good mix of compact/all together and open and big. One of my fave things was how green the whole place is. It was really well organised and the students union building is easily accessible from a lot of different places on campus. They also handed out free water and crisps haha

Personally, my top choice is still Liverpool but objectively I like Sheffield the same amount so I would definitely recommend!

Hi! I wanted to know about placement opportunities at Sheffield. I'm applying for biomed this year. How much does the uni help in finding placements and such? (I've heard a lot about how unis 'help students' but how does that work exactly?) I'd appreciate any info you have on the same.

Thanks! :smile:

Hi @sleep_supremacy,

Just out of curiosity, is there a particular area of biomed that you are particularly interested in, or is it the subject as a whole? πŸ˜€

Great question! Students are responsible for finding their own placement which ensures that it is related to the field that they personally are interested in. That being said, students are not left on their own during this process. At department level the personal tutor will be able to help guide you through the process as you would have been meeting with them regularly throughout your degree. They will be able to use their knowledge and connections in the Biomed field to recommend opportunities that align with your interests. In addition, Biomed placement years have been running for a while at Sheffield, so the department has very strong links with different labs and companies that repeatedly take placement students from Sheffield.

At University level, the careers service provides 1 to 1 sessions to help students finding placements, where they can suggest places for students to start their research. They also offer 1 to 1 sessions on interview technique and to go through CV's and covering letters to give students the best chance at securing that placement.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Thank you so much for your answer, Meg! :smile:

Currently, I'm the most interested in cellular and molecular biology, though I enjoy the other aspects of biomed too.

I'm very happy to see that the placement process is so streamlined and smooth. And the 1-on-1 sessions also sound really helpful! :biggrin:

Thanks again, and if I have any other questions, I'll be sure to let you know! :smile:
