Biology placements

Biology students enrolled on the MBiochem, MMarBiol and MBiol have the opportunity to undertake an external industrial or research placements (7 to 12 months) in leading companies and research institutes in the UK and abroad.  In fourth year, students typically undertake a year-long research placement often away from St Andrews, in a research institute or in industry, along with an experimental design online module.  The School is able to assist students with finding a placement but placements are not guaranteed. 

The Integrated Masters in Biochemistry provides excellent preparation for a career within the scientific sector. See the School of Biology for further details.
