This is a 5-year course. During the first 3 years, you will follow an appropriate BSc degree course structure in one of the following: Marine Biology and Zoology BSc. At the end of Year 2, providing a satisfactory mark has been obtained, you continue with the final year of the BSc course (after your palcement year) and proceed to a 5th year specialised course. In Year 5 you carry out a substantial piece of research which forms your Year 5 dissertation. You will be able to work in a staff member’s research group and will gain valuable research experience of working in a research environment. The placement year provides you with a fantastic opportunity to broaden your horizons and develop valuable skills and contacts through working with an organization relevant to your degree subject. Previous and current students have worked with a wide variety of placement providers, ranging from private companies to educational organizations, charities, government authorities and non-governmental organizations. Our students who have undertaken a placement year have highlighted how the experience has helped them to develop invaluable networks, confidence and life experience as well as subject knowledge and skills that have boosted their employability. The Placement Year is undertaken at the end of the second year and students are away for the whole of the academic year. The minimum period in placement (at one or more locations) is seven calendar months; more usually you would spend 10-12 months with a placement provider. You would normally start sometime in the period June to September of their second year and finish between June and September the following year. Placements can be UK-based or overseas and you will work with staff to plan and finalise the placement arrangements.
