You will learn the fundamentals of biology and chemistry that underpin the study of biochemistry. Then you will choose from a broad range of modules across topics such as cell and molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, genetics, protein engineering and microbial biotechnology. There are currently more than 14 modules available on this course, including Genomes, Genes and Genomics; Microbial Biotechnology; Cell Signalling; Organic Compounds: Synthesis and Properties; Inorganic Compounds: Structure and Function and more. In your third year, you will have the chance to further develop your laboratory and technical skills with an independent research project in a unique area of science. You could even see your research published. In addition to following the BSc pathway, you will complete a further year of advanced study. You will undertake a year-long independent research project, as well as having the opportunity to study advanced biochemistry modules at Master’s level. This is the ideal preparation for progressing onto PhD study and a successful research career.
