Course Information

Biotechnology creates a vital link between biology and technology. Our 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 degree allows you to combine your training in biochemistry with study of the French language. These classes, taught in French by the Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication, focus on the use and presentation of written and oral scientific and technical material in French.

You will also receive an introduction to the theory and practice of translation, alongside further studies in the history, politics, science and technology of French-speaking countries.

In the first two years you will cover core biotechnology modules alongside these classes, including biological chemistry, molecular biology, integrative cell biology and genes and genomics.

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.

You spend your third year studying in a French-speaking university, where you will attend lectures and conduct a research project.

In your final year you have increased freedom to follow your own interests by choosing from a wide range of optional modules and completing a research project or dissertation involving a significant element of biotechnology.

Please note: this course is not suitable for native or near-native French speakers.

Normally only students who are on track for at least a 2:1 by the end of their second year, will be eligible to spend their third year abroad.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Life sciences graduates enjoy excellent career opportunities. Most of our graduates study for a higher degree in life sciences and many follow careers in the field, particularly in the research and management areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biomedical science, food technology, agrisciences, and pest, disease and environmental management.

Similar opportunities exist for life scientists in government and independent laboratories involved in medical research, public health, forensic investigation, disease research, conservation, and pollution. Some of our graduates also go on to work in medical careers, become teachers, or even work in the media.

Recent graduates of the Department have become:

  • Research Officer, A*STAR, Singapore

  • Television Researcher, BBC

  • Fungicide Biochemist, Syngenta

  • Analyst, Deutsche Bank

  • PhD student, Cambridge University
