BSc Archaeological Sciences (with placement year)

  • Plays hockey for the University's Hockey Club
  • Interested in the science behind discoveries
  • Wants to do Master's in Human Osteology

Katherine says it's an interesting time to be studying Archaeology.

"I chose to study Archaeological Sciences because archaeological research is constantly being undertaken, especially with HS2 bringing more jobs in the coming years."

She chose the science-focussed course as she has an interest in the science behind the discoveries, particularly in Human Osteology.

"The optional placement year in the third year, which I will be undertaking, is a great option to determine what career I might pursue in the future."

In her spare time she plays for the University's Hockey Club.

"I play regularly, attending training sessions twice a week and playing matches against other universities and against local teams.

"I also volunteer at Girl Guiding units both in Bradford and in my home town, where I help run units for girls aged between 7 and 10. By doing this it builds up my leadership and communication skills by helping to plan and run activities which are suitable for the age group."

After graduating she hopes to do a Master's in Human Osteology, then a PhD to further her studies and give her more career options in future.
