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; and Inorganic Compounds: Structure and Function. In your final 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 receiving the same teaching and opportunities offered by the BSc, 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. You can also enjoy the experience and career benefits of living and studying abroad in your third year. We currently have exchange agreements with universities in Europe and North America, including California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Colorado and Missouri in the United States, and in British Columbia, Western Ontario and Calgary in Canada.
