Investigating biochemical processes right down to the molecular level has brought about huge leaps in our understanding across many disciplines – from evolution and reproduction to disease prevention and engineering. Biochemical research will be extremely important in the coming decades. If you want to open up opportunities for further study or you’re thinking you’d like a career in research to make your own contribution to this vital field, then this course – accredited by the Royal Society of Biology – offers a great starting point. From unlocking stem cell therapies and overcoming cancer and dementia to revolutionising computers and developing advanced materials – biochemical research has the capacity to make a huge impact on life on this planet. Our Biochemistry with Research Placement BSc(Hons) course could be your key to becoming part of this groundbreaking industry. As a student on the course you'll be eligible for undergraduate Associate Membership of the Biochemical Society and you’ll be able to register as an associate member of Royal Society of Chemistry. In addition, this Research Placement version of the Biochemistry BSc(Hons) course has Advanced Accreditation by the Royal Society of Biology and when you complete the degree successfully you can apply for Associate Membership of the Royal Society of Biology (AMRSB).* The degree is based on the same framework as Biochemistry BSc(Hons), so during the course you’ll get a grounding in the fundamentals of chemistry, biology and biochemistry. As you progress through your studies you’ll have the chance to explore more advanced topics such as macromolecular structure and gene cloning, choosing some modules to help tailor your degree. You’ll be taught by leading academics through lectures, seminars and sessions using modern scientific instruments in our specialist biological science labs. All along the way, we’ll support you to develop the insight and skills that could give you the edge when you graduate.
