Programme description

This programme offers you an academically-challenging and career-developing study of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level.

Biochemistry is fundamental to most areas of life-science; it has a major impact on modern medical research and is essential in the pharmaceutical, nutrition, forensic, bioengineering, agricultural and environmental industries.

The programme is designed to produce highly skilled and motivated biochemists that are suitable for employment in the life-sciences or for further academic research.

You will be taught to apply chemical and physical principles to biological molecules in complex living systems in order to expand your understanding of the molecular basis of the processes which take place within these organisms.

Through a combination of taught courses, practical skills training and laboratory-based research, you will explore the structures, dynamics, interactions and metabolic pathways of biological molecules, from small molecules to large macromolecular complexes.

Programme structure

Teaching and learning activities include:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • workshops
  • presentations
  • laboratory work
  • practical skills training and a research project
  • literature and database searching
  • discussion groups and project groups
  • seminars

Students will have practical skills training and will attend problem and computer-based tutorials and workshops.

Research

Those students progressing to MSc level will carry out their own research project at the frontier of knowledge and can make a genuine contribution to the progress of original research. This also involves reviewing relevant papers, analysing data, writing a dissertation and giving a presentation.

Learning outcomes

The programme aims to develop:

  • knowledge and understanding of biochemistry and awareness of the current state of research
  • enhanced practical skills in biochemical methods
  • ability to design, perform and record experiments independently
  • analytical skills to interpret data accurately and critically
  • ability to communicate biochemical information effectively in a wide range of contexts

Career opportunities

You will enhance your career prospects by acquiring knowledge of contemporary biochemistry from world experts in the field, by being trained in advanced analytical and presentation skills, and by having independent research experience in a modern, world-class laboratory.
