Course Information

Build on the BSc Biochemistry curriculum with an additional year completing a challenging management programme.

Our biochemistry courses cover all aspects of the applied biochemistry and biotechnology industries, including commercialising technology, entrepreneurship, and intellectual property and patents, with lectures and case studies from business leaders and academics.

This course enables you to study the full Biochemistry curriculum and then spend your third year in Imperial College Business School.

Study programme

All Biotechnology and Biochemistry students follow the same core modules for the first two years, including biological chemistry, molecular biology, integrative cell biology and genes and genomics. This gives you a solid grounding in the fundamental topics, and prepares you for advanced study.

Our teaching is enriched by the Department’s internationally leading research programme, so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. You will also benefit from access to our outstanding facilities, including for genomic and cell biology studies, tissue culture suites and the most modern microscopes.

In your third year you have increased freedom to follow your own interests by choosing from a wide range of optional modules on topics such as synthetic biology, cancer and bioinformatics. You will also complete a substantial project or dissertation.

Your final year is spent in Imperial College Business School, which is triple-accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB.  The core modules including accounting, entrepreneurship and marketing equip you with an understanding of the management of the operating environment of business organisations, and prepare you for a career in management roles.
