BSc (Hons), Sandwich With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Biochemistry and Chemistry.
The Biochemistry course delivers an exciting theoretical and laboratory perspective on the molecular basis of life. Our state-of-the-art facilities for practical work and our innovative teaching and assessment methods will ensure that you have a fantastic student experience. By choosing to study Biochemistry, youâll be exploring life at the molecular level and investigating the most exciting areas of contemporary life science and medical research. Whether you study Single Honours or Combined Honours, the Biochemistry courses place particular emphasis on human and mammalian biochemistry, especially relating to health and
disease. This might include unravelling the secrets of the human genome or exploring the targeted molecular therapies of the future.
The chemistry course at Keele consistently attracts excellent student feedback and provides an innovative curriculum and high quality teaching. The variety of coursework items embedded within the course allow for the development of chemistry and transferable skills, giving our graduates excellent prospects. Many of the frontiers of science lie at the boundary between scientific disciplines and therefore a Combined Honours degree studying chemistry alongside another subject is attractive to those who wish to explore these areas. Youâll develop a solid foundation of chemical theory and practical skills, building to cover advanced concepts and contemporary issues in chemistry in later years. You can tailor your studies to reflect your interests, and learn how to pursue your own research. Youâll have hands-on experience with state-of-the-art scientific instruments and techniques, enjoy access to dedicated IT facilities and an excellent
modern teaching laboratory. Youâll learn to use chemistry in problem solving, and to present your theories and findings confidently and imaginatively to your audiences through a range of media. You could even spend a semester or year abroad.
When you graduate, the broad and detailed understanding of biochemistry and Chemistry youâll have developed at Keele will open up a world of appealing career
options. You could choose to work in a directly related field, perhaps as a clinical biochemist, medical bioscientist, forensic scientist, research scientist, analytical chemist, toxicologist or science teacher. Or you could branch out a little further, and become a health and safety inspector, training standards
officer, science writer or technical author. Alternatively, the problem-solving nature of chemistry gives graduates the edge in industries where these skills are sought in a variety of employment areas from IT to marketing and accountancy. The applied nature of the programme will equip you with a range of transferable employability skills for careers in the Biosciences as well as in other graduate careers where numeracy and an objective scientific approach to problem solving are valued.
