This degree programme allows you to explore the complexities of biology and chemistry, alongside giving you the opportunity to undertake a year-long industrial placement in your third year.
The study of biochemistry is fundamental to many other areas of contemporary biology, as biochemists are capable of applying their expertise in scientific fields including biology, chemistry and even physics. Our Biochemistry course combines the expertise of the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Chemistry, which gives you the benefit of a flexible programme with a wide range of module and teaching methods.
The course is designed to begin by providing a foundation in the chemical principles that underlie biochemistry and aspects of cellular and molecular biology. Furthermore the opportunity to take part in a year in industry makes for an invaluable addition to your scientific knowledge and technique. It increases your employability and gives you the chance to put your first two years of biochemical learning into practice.
