    Heyy
    I think I wanna study biochemistry. But I'm really not sure yet which universities to choose. So if you're already studying it or you have specific unis in mind, please tell me. I'd also like to do a year in industry.
    I really like biology but how much chemistry is actually involved? I know it's called biochemistry for a reason but do you do loads of chemistry, like on it's own, inorganic/kinetic chemistry, many calculations,etc.
    If you could give me any advice on which uni/ course details, I'd really appreciate it.
    Also, what's the difference between molecular cell biology and biochemistry? Is a biochemistry degree better?
    Thanks for your help

    I'm starting my Biochem.(+year in industry) degree this fall at York I think chemistry is a pretty big part of the degree, for instance my course has lectures in both inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry etc. It varies from uni to uni but I found this page very useful in determining what each course entails. The modules differ depending on the university, but on the whole I think Biochemistry involves more chemistry then Molecular cell biology. and MCB involves some elements of physiology, plant biology etc. that Biochemistry doesn't.
