If you wish to study Biochemistry then this exciting four year course may be for you. It allows students to integrate three years of undergraduate study in Biochemistry with a further year of postgraduate level study, leading to the qualification of MBiol (Biochemistry). This course is ideal if you aspire to a career as a research scientist in Biochemistry or just wish to take your Biochemistry knowledge to a higher level. The advantage of choosing an integrated Masters degree is that you can apply for a four year student loan for the full duration of the course, rather than seeking funding for a Masters after completing your first degree. This degree will give you a solid foundation in the study of cellular, molecular and chemical biology. The subject is taught within an internationally recognised centre of excellence, by experts in the Biochemistry field. The University has modern teaching facilities with over £55 million pounds invested. You will be studying in a University that is ranked top 5 in the UK and 1st in Wales for student satisfaction (NSS, 2017). The Biochemistry teaching staff are recognised as expert and innovative educators. Employability is embedded in our teaching. We are linked closely with the Biochemical society, which is a great platform for students to network with others in their discipline. Our students leave Aberystwyth University with the skills including: research and data analysis skills; enhanced mathematical and computational skills; effective problem-solving and creative thinking skills; a thorough grounding in information technology skills; the ability to work independently; time-management and organisational skills, including the ability to meet deadlines the ability to express ideas and communicate; information in a clear and structured manner, in both written and oral form; self-motivation and self-reliance; team-work, with the ability to discuss concepts in groups, accommodating different ideas and reaching agreement. Upon successful completion of the MBiol Biochemistry, you will have improved your employability prospects by successfully obtaining a Master's qualification.
