Biochemistry and Molecular Cell Biology (4 years)

This dual honours course has advanced accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology. It places more emphasis on lab skills than a three-year BSc and includes an extensive research project which could be based on campus or in industry. Sheffield offers an unusual amount of flexibility: at the end of the first year, you can choose to transfer to any other course in the department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. Many students appreciate this option as their interests develop in a particular direction. Staff like to keep tutorial groups small so everyone gets the support they need. Graduates work in pharmaceuticals, healthcare, food safety, and forensic science.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.
