We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Biochemistry train postgraduates in all aspects of the molecular processes which occur at the cell level of living organisms. Specialisations in this field include Clinical Biochemistry, Physical Biochemistry, and Industrial Biochemistry.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant field such as Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, or Animal Science.
With a range of specialisations to choose from in this field, you have the potential to engage with a number of different methods of practise. You may focus on human microbiology, exploring topics such as human diseases including cancer biology, or genetics and specific areas such as neurobiology. If machinery for human treatment is of interest to you, you could focus your study on designing new machinery for use in hospitals. In an industrial context, you could even opt to explore automation.
Career possibilities are endless. With the experience you’ll gain through lab testing, data analysis, and experimentation, you would be suited to positions in hospital laboratories, research institutes, pharmaceuticals, or even agriculture and conservation. You could also gear your experience towards further research at PhD level and a career in academia.
