About the course

The Department offers a one-year full-time MPhil programme, by research, leading to the Master of Philosophy in Biological Science (Biochemistry). This is also available as a part-time option over two years. Currently, we do not run a Masters course by instruction, involving classes and examinations.

The aim of this MPhil degree is to give candidates a grounding in modern biochemical and biomedical research techniques, practical experience of a year-long, full-time experimental research project, and skills in scientific communication through both oral presentations and writing.
