University of Sheffield has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Sheffield offers quality, consistency and practical experience. All our courses are accredited by professional societies. There are problem-solving classes and lab practicals as well as lectures. And there are weekly small-group tutorials so we can make sure you’re getting all the support you need. This combination of subjects gives you a grounding in theoretical and practical aspects of biology and chemistry before moving on to topics at the cutting edge of research. Graduates work all over the world in the pharmaceutical industry, fine chemicals, materials and bioscience for companies such as Unilever and GlaxoSmithKline. But their problem-solving abilities and their high level of numeracy are valued outside the sector, in financial services, IT, management and teaching.
