Biochemistry with a Year Abroad

On this course, you’ll follow the same programme as our MSci Biochemistry students, but you will spend your third year studying abroad at a partner university in Europe, Asia, Australia, USA or Canada. Experience and learn from the differences in teaching, research and culture – plus make valuable contacts for your career. Our biochemistry degrees are taught jointly by the Schools of Biological Sciences and Chemistry. This dual approach means that in all elements of the course you benefit from subject-specific experts who inform our undergraduate teaching. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), 100% of our biological sciences research environment and impact was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent, and the quality of our chemistry research output was ranked fourth in the UK (Times Higher Education Ref 2014 subject rankings). Our research makes use of a wide array of facilities such as multi-photon and laser scanning confocal microscopes for the study of cells and tissues at the molecular level, high-field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers and X-ray diffractometers for the study of molecular structure, mass spectrometers, liquid and gas chromatography systems, and fluorescence and electron microscopes. You will benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes such as the John Innes Centre, The Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, and the new £75-million Quadram Institute. **Course Structure** **Year one** In your first year you will learn the fundamentals of biology and chemistry that underpin the study of biochemistry. **Year two** As you progress 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 along with a wide range of optional modules **Year three** You will spend your third year living and studying abroad. You can choose from a broad range of partner universities in Europe, Australia and Asia. **Year four** In your final year you’ll undertake a year-long independent research project, as well as having the opportunity to study advanced biochemistry modules at Master’s level. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
