The point where chemistry, biology and medicine meet, biochemistry deals with the molecular nuts and bolts of living organisms and diseases. Advances in the biosciences are having a profound impact on our daily lives, from human health to conservation, making it a hugely rewarding area to study and work in. Studying at Birmingham means you'll benefit from high-technology facilities and teaching from world-renowned experts in their field. You'll also be able to tailor your course to match your own interests and goals, and have the opportunity to join one of our research groups, working on live research projects. The Year in Continental Europe option provides the opportunity to combine Biochemistry with training in a modern language, culminating in a year of study at a University in France, Germany or Spain, with sessions given in the language of the host country.
