    Because doing a masters mean you're gonna be studying more about a certain topic within that subject so basically within biochemistry. Biochemistry is a wide wide subject

    Are they really that rare? I just googled "biochemistry masters" and on the first page of results I get Biochemistry Masters degrees at Manchester, Birmingham, Kent, Edinburgh, Oxford and Cambridge. That's a pretty good spread to be going on with and there must be many more.

    ah ok thank you, would you say it would be better to do a postgrad masters or undergrad? as some of the universities near me don't offer masters, but offer the same entry requirements as a masters at another uni

    Southampton offers a 4 year integrated Biochemistry Masters - essentially 3 years of undergrad + 1 year for the Masters. As it's integrated, you will get Student Finance for all four years:

    Bath offers an MSc Biosciences, which is intended to be tailored to each student's interests. Given the strength of their Biochemistry department and the available module options, the course could easily be delivered as a Biochemistry course:

    It doesn't matter whether you do a postgard or undergrad masters degree. At the end of either you'll have a masters. It's easier to do an undergrad one coz of the finance though.
