Biochemistry

Our four year BSc Biochemistry course with integrated placement year focuses on the study of life at the molecular level. You will explore the way that molecules are synthesised, regulated and interact to give rise to highly complex organisms. Biochemistry lies at the interface of the life and physical sciences and is therefore applicable to a wide range of fields such as medicine, pharmaceutics and biotechnology. The course is designed to equip you with the key laboratory, analytical, computational and communication skills necessary to succeed in this field. You will study though a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical sessions with a compulsory integrated placement year designed to give you further experience and enhance your employability. Upon completion of the course you will meet the rising demand for qualified biochemists within the UK and across the world. Our graduates are equipped for a wide range of professional careers in both the public and private sectors including research and development, scientific communication, patent law, and sales and management. Many graduates will undertake further postgraduate study.
