Biochemistry at University of Salford - UCAS

Course summary

Biochemistry is the foundation for understanding all biological processes. Develop your knowledge of how organisms work at the molecular level in the fields of medicine, agriculture, and in many chemical and health-related industries with our accredited BSc (Hons) Biochemistry degree. Biochemistry has become the foundation for understanding all biological processes. Positioned at the cutting-edge of research, Biochemistry is an exceptionally versatile scientific discipline. The knowledge and methods developed by biochemists are applied to all fields of medicine, in agriculture and in many chemical and health related industries. Take your scientific knowledge further Delivered across three years - or four if you choose to include a placement, our Royal Society of Biology-accredited Biochemistry course will help you to explore key scientific subjects in biological chemistry, organic chemistry and genetics. Initially focusing on core concepts of biochemistry, you will progress to build knowledge in areas such as molecular genetics and human physiology. In your final year, you can choose from a selection of specialised modules and complete your studies with a supervised research project in a subject of your choice. Throughout your studies, you will develop strong laboratory skills. As a biochemistry student, you will spend lots of time in our advanced Bodmer laboratories. These well-equipped, purpose-built facilities ensure your learning remains on the cutting-edge of innovation and discovery. The labs host industry-standard instrumentation, including cell culture facilities, histology specimen preparation station, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy. On this course, you also have the opportunity to study part of your course overseas at our partner institution Toledo University in Ohio, USA (Ucas code C702). Alongside making new friends and a lifetime of memories, you will be inspired by an international science department at the forefront of research. Get closer to industry You will also have the opportunity to complete a placement year between years two and three, which is arranged with our support. Recent students have completed placement years at AstraZeneca, the Cancer Research UK Manchester institute, and the Respiratory Physiology Unit at the Royal Aintree Hospital in Liverpool. By successfully completing a placement, you can add 'Advanced Degree Accreditation' to your degree award.
