    I plan on doing a phd in biochemistry but I need advice on where to start. I live in woodbridge and have 2 children here so my only options are Essex and East Anglia for undergrad. Essex has a 3 year BSc and EA has a 4 year MSc. I would love to finish a phd at Cambridge but as all 3 schools have a phd in biochemistry what advice can any students who've gone to any of these schools give me on the best route?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey there! I am currently and undergrad at Essex Uni, so if you want I could give you some info about how it is to study here. I have just finished my first year and so far it was amazing. The thing that stood out for me was the fact that most people I have met seemed to be so passionate about what they do. That's why in a way, I was motivated to do my best as well. What is funny is the biochemistry department is actually one of the most popular ones in our Uni, as it has high-class lecturers that are very devoted to their subject. So if you want to study Biochemistry, Essex might be a good start for you.
    Hope it helped!

    Hi PJNolen,

    As you point out, there are lots of different opportunties, including the 4 year MSci Biochemistry course. As per our brochure, the first two years of this integrated Master’s programmes will provide you with an understanding of fundamental biochemical principles before allowing you to choose from a range of specialisms in your third year. Alternatively, you can spend the third year abroad. The fourth year of study involves a selection of advanced level taught modules and an advanced project during which you will become integrated into an active research group to investigate a topic at the forefront of modern biochemistry.

    When it comes to PhD, we also have a vast array of Science studentships and opportunities on our website here. While these change very regularly, it's worth having a look at what you could do here.

    Take a look at our video below for some examples of why it's a great place to study for Postgraduate Research. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email [email protected] or call us on 01603 591515 for a chat.
