Gain a fundamental understanding of life processes at a molecular level. You’ll be prepared for a career examining the molecular basis of life. Biochemistry is the study of the molecules that interact to produce life. You will develop knowledge and techniques to understand and solve biological problems at the most fundamental level, preparing you for a wide range of academic, industrial and medically related careers. In the first year you’ll study a broad introduction to biosciences through a set of core units. You will also gain hands-on experience of practical scientific techniques in dedicated undergraduate laboratories. You will continue to study some core units but have choices of specialisations in later years. In the final year you’ll undertake a research project, giving you first-hand experience as a researcher. Research areas include infection and immunity, industrial biotechnology, neuroscience and developmental biology. Our academic staff are experts in their subject and can show you what it takes to be successful in that field. You’ll graduate with a solid foundation for further study or for graduate roles where a broader knowledge of biosciences is needed. The skills you develop mean that you will also be prepared for a vast array of alternative careers.
