Good = what? Bear in mind that different unis may call a course different things so focus on the course content.

Yeah - I am looking for specific courses as my undegraduate course (biochemistry) is very broad - I was thinking in terms of reputation/teaching qualities and facilities - am looking to go on past that to then study for pHd in either of those areas.

Reputation means nothing for PhD applications. You may want to consider MRes courses instead of MScs. Even more so for a PhD application you want to look at content as that will help determine what sort of PhD you do.

Yeah that's true - I am more looking at an MSc as it has more taught components on the course, as I would like a deeper understanding of the area first. I was then planning on taking a gap year and focussing on my PhD application.

It sounds like you've got this well thought out then. The one thing I would say is that your PhD is just a training course to be a researcher so you don't need to have an area of specialty at that level either. But if this is what you want to do, go for it. Good luck!
