Course details
Course UCAS code: C742
Qualification type:
  • Msci (Hon), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
You will work in specialist laboratories which are fully equipped for hands-on experience in areas ranging from proteins and enzymes, to gene cloning technology. We have strong links with clinical schools in the University, so you will have the opportunity to widen your breadth of knowledge via contact with biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists, and cell biologists. This clinical link is a valuable element, as this course focuses particularly on the clinical and medical aspects of biochemistry over your second and third years. This expertise is in high demand, as you will be developing the skills desperately needed in the fight against various diseases and illnesses, and contributing to the development of life-saving medicines.
During your first year you will be introduced to the fundamental aspects of cell biology, biochemistry, genetics and cellular control alongside essential chemistry. These modules are supported by laboratory sessions. In your second year, you will continue at greater depth covering topics such as gene function, pharmacology and macromolecules. In the third year, you will begin to specialise particularly in the clinical and medical elements of biochemistry. You will undertake an individual project which may be lab, bioinformatics or literature-based. You will then proceed in your final year to design and implement your very own laboratory-based research project. This project will consolidate your studies throughout the degree, and will allow you to focus on the areas of biochemistry that interest you the most, supported by academic staff at the forefront of scientific research.
