I’m joining September 24th to study Biochemistry & Genetics at Nottingham. I just wanted to ask anyone who studies the course what is entailed within “core skills in biochemistry” as it seems quite vague and I would also like to read in advance and get a good understanding of the topics before I start.

It sounds like some basic maths stuff along with lab stuff. I wouldn't worry about reading before you start as you will have enough time for it later.

Thank you! Do you have a rough overview on the method of assessments? Like are there many practicals / coursework or is it all exam based? Also how many hours a week are spent in lectures and labs? Thank you!

Hi, the method of assessment varies depending on the modules you choose. Generally most of the assessments are online exams that consist of a variety of questions such as multiple choice, labelling diagrams and filling in blanks to complete paragraphs. There are quite a few practicals associated with the modules where after each of the practicals you will be given a window to complete an online exam, this is used to test your understanding of the concepts of the practical. You will have to complete coursework and lab reports as well, though they are generally for the second semester. For contact hours, it does depend and may have changed since I was in first year. For me, We would have days lasting from 9-6 where you would probably have ~10 hours of labs per week. Hope that helps, let me know if there is anything else you need
