    Im looking to study biochemistry at bristol university but cannot seem to find detailed information on the course structure. On other universities websites they break down the course into modules eg proteins, genetics, immunology whereas bristol only says 'biology' 'pharmocology.'
    Does anyone know a more detailed break down of the course?

    hi, i've applied for biochem at bristol and ive only just got my offer today... (they rejected me before christmas and changed their minds today!)

    anyway, i was just wondering if you could tell me generally about the course and the uni? mainly, how much plant biochem is there compared to human/mammal biochem? also where's the best accommodation?

    thanks!

    Hiii
    Well its mainly human related, we usually do the sorta normal function of something and then relate it to disease when something has gone wrong with the protein or whatever in discussion.
    There is some plant, we have done a little bit of photosynthesis, but in ties in well to the other humans cycles we have done, I find it suprisingly interesting.
    One third of the course is the compulsory biochemistry, one third compulsory chemistry and the other third an optional unit. For my optional unit I chose Anatomy to help balance out the chemistry with a more biological topic, but there are about 12 you can chose from - ranging from maths and physics to microbiology and tumour cells. Obviously you can direct this more to your own tastes, so if you didnt like the plant stuff or really did there would be things more suitable.
    As for accommodation, depends, did you want catered or selfcatered?

    Pretty sure thats a no, to get into dentistry it is a far more rigorous process and there is much higher competition for the places. Biochemistry also have no links/module sharing etc with the dentistry department at all, so I don't see why they would transfer you.
