Course Information

Biochemistry is an essential part of modern science as it crosses many disciplines and provides fundamental insights into biological processes. It has revolutionised our understanding of biological systems from microbes to humans and has led to many beneficial biotechnology applications.

The BSc Biochemistry will equip you with a strong foundation in modern biochemistry, and specialist knowledge and skills essential for careers in pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, agricultural and related sectors.

Our biochemistry graduates also seek wider career opportunities in hospitals, government department, academic organisations and the publishing industry.
