Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes that occur within living organisms. It is also referred to as chemical biology, molecular cell biology, and the biology of the living cell. Biochemists develop new ideas and products that are applied to the biggest challenges we face today. Biochemists help us to understand the process of life itself.


A typical offer is BBB - ABB at A-Level [or equivalent for other qualifications: 300 – 320 UCAS tariff points].

You must have good grades in Chemistry and Biology.

Students studying for BTEC qualifications would require a minimum grade B at A-Level in both Biology and Chemistry plus a Distinction (D) in a relevant BTEC Subsidiary Diploma (6 units).

IB: 32 - 33 (including good HL grades in Chemistry and Biology).

We make individual offers for your circumstances after reading your UCAS personal statements and references.
