Bangor University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
To prepare students for our Medical Biochemistry degree, our Foundation Year provides the basic, but essential understanding of biological and chemical principles that underpin the field. It is an ideal course if you have an interest in Medical Biochemistry or a desire to enter a related career but do not currently have the necessary scientific background to enter our 3 year programme.
The Foundation Year is also designed to prepare students for our other undergraduate degree programmes, B102 Biomedical Science, B100 Medical Sciences and B103 Medical Biology and there is the possibility to transfer onto one of these programmes, subject to successfully passing the Foundation Year.
The Medical Biochemistry programme will provide a multi-disciplinary perspective of the current and developing field of pathology, medical genetics and disease management. This programme will provide students with a broad basis of scientific knowledge regarding human health and disease, of importance in modern day diagnostics.
For details of the modular structure, please see the course description on Bangor University's website.
