    Hey! I have applied for all biochemistry courses at St Andrews Durham Nottingham Warwick and Aston. So far I have had offers from St Andrews BBB Nottingham ABB and Aston BCC.

    I've chosen to go to St Andrews if i can get the grades. I've seen league tables that put St Andrews 3rd for Biosciences and 4th for Chemistry. BBB seems really low for those standards isnt it?

    Yay more biochemists! Well done on those offers! If you don't mind, could you tell me when you sent off your application for St. Andrews? I sent it off at the start of November, and all I've had so far was an acknowledgement. Argh I hate how Scottish unis are so slow in making decisions.

    Would you like the theory of life with that as well? Lol, that's like asking the impossible. It's based on many factors (and also you should compile your own). Ie. "The WOW factor" etc. which most uni guides don't factor (surprisingly).

    Well, for example York and Nottingham appeal to me, but as an international I don't know much of the reputation of their biochemistry departments, I've just generally heard that they're regarded as good universities.
    I mean, there definitely are unis which are considered better for biochemistry than others (some don't have good facilities or teaching quality is poor).
    I know that it all depends on whether you like the course and the uni or not, but I would just like some starting points.

    Nottingham's good (i'm slightly biased seeing as i'm going there!), but i really liked their biology course and modules and they seemed like a friendly place! New equipment too and such, and the biology field course (to portugal) looks awesome!

    Not UCL? Probably the best place to study biomolecular sciences in the country...

    So do you think UCL is superior to Imperial? Why would that be? (I need to decide between Imperial & UCL too!)

    I'm an AS student but i'm thinking about what universities to look at, I really like organic chemistry and biology; if i chose to do a biochem course, what would be the best uni to look at? (preferably not london, i want to get away from home.)
    I have thought about warwick, oxford, edinburgh, bristol, york, surrey, aston amoung others, i'd like peoples opinions on them.

    St. Andrews is supposedly a good uni for biochem too.
