Following an in-depth foundation in biochemistry, covering areas such as molecules, cells, physiology, disease, and both physical and organic chemistry, the course broadens out. This enables you to focus on specialist areas including biophysical chemistry (describing biological macromolecules at atomic level), and understanding genomes and gene regulation.

In your third year you complete a challenging full-time research project on an area of particular academic interest. This may be lab-based or involve data analysis and will give you invaluable experience of applying your subject knowledge to real-life workplace challenges.

If you want to gain a higher level qualification and enhance your career prospects you may wish to consider the four-year MBio programme (see below) on which you will undertake an additional final-year extended research project within the School or on an industrial placement.

To take into account

Our Biochemistry degree explores the biochemical and structural basis of molecular, cellular and developmental processes in a variety of organisms, and prepares you to work in a range of settings within biological, biochemical and medical sciences. You will learn in a supportive environment, maintaining regular contact with a personal academic tutor, with flexibility to tailor the course to your own interests. You will develop a sound understanding of biomolecules and their analysis, including new and novel analytical methods, how these molecules function and how this affects the biological functioning of the whole organism. You will develop the research and analysis, presentation, communication, problem-solving and writing skills that are essential in all employment sectors.

Our graduates have gone on to work for organisations including: NHS, AstraZeneca, KPMG, Taylor and Francis Scientific Publishing, Diabetes UK. Examples of our graduates’ job roles include: Seed Pathology Technician, Research & Development Scientist, Management Development Associate, Medical Public, Relations Consultant. Others have pursued PG study.

A level ABB including Biology and Chemistry or AAB to include Chemistry and either Mathematics, Physics or Statistics plus either GCSE Biology grade B/grade 6 or GCSE Double Science grades B, B/grades 6, 6 or AS Level Biology grade B or grade A in a Biology-related EPQ. You must also achieve a pass in the science practical if your science A level includes a separate practical assessment.

Course programme

Year 1 – Molecules, Cells & Organisms, Agents of Infectious Disease, Physiology & Metabolism, Physical Chemistry, Quantitative Skills for Biology, Organic Chemistry, Tutorials and Laboratories

Year 2 –Molecular Cell Biology, Tools for Biochemical Discovery, Signalling & Integration in Health & Disease, Tutorials and Laboratories

Year 3 – Protein Targeting, Structural Molecular Biology, Principles of Development, Dynamics of Biological Systems, Tutorials and Research Project.

How will I learn?

You will have weekly (first year) and fortnightly (second and third years) taught tutorials, which are in small groups to ensure that you are able to develop, and receive regular feedback on assessment.

Purpose-built teaching facilities are fully integrated with research laboratories, meaning you will be learning alongside teaching and research staff who are at the cutting edge of their fields. You will spend one or two days a week undertaking lab work. This becomes more project-oriented in your second year, culminating in a six-week individual research project in your third year.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through tutorials, laboratory practical, oral presentation, written assignment and exam-based questions. Approximately 35% of your marks will be assessed by coursework throughout your degree.
