Gain a fundamental understanding of life processes at a molecular level. You’ll be prepared for a career examining the molecular basis of life. Biochemistry involves solving biological problems through an understanding of the molecular basis of life. You will develop your knowledge, techniques and understanding at a fundamental level, preparing you for a wide range of academic, industrial and medically related careers. In the first year, you’ll study a broad introduction to biosciences. This will give you a foundation from which you will have the option to specialise in specific areas, such as neuroscience, cellular molecular biology, genomics and biotechnology. You will also gain hands-on experience of practical scientific techniques in dedicated undergraduate laboratories, as well as access to specialist technology in research labs. In the final year, you’ll undertake a research project, giving you first-hand experience as a researcher and the opportunity to contribute to some of the world-leading research in the Department. You will graduate with a solid foundation for further study or graduate roles where a broader knowledge of molecular biosciences is needed. The academic and key skills you'll develop mean you will also be prepared for a wide range of alternative careers. The Master of Biochemistry (MBiochem) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques. You’ll study master's-level units and carry out a major research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.
