Biochemistry (4 years)

The biochemist plays an important role in pharmaceuticals, healthcare, food safety, and forensic science. Our graduates work in all those fields. They also go into education, the civil service and research. Sheffield is rated number one in the UK for medically related research in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The four-year MBiolSci has advanced accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology. It places more emphasis on lab skills than a three-year BSc. The course also includes an extensive research project which could be based on campus or in industry. Staff in the department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology like to keep tutorial groups small so everyone gets the support they need. You’re not tied to the course you register for: you can graduate after three years with a BSc if you prefer.
