Course summary

Biochemical research underpins a great deal of the core knowledge in life sciences. In particular, the discipline has helped illuminate many of the problems that have fascinated and perplexed molecular bioscientists. The Biochemistry MSci - premised on research - provides an invaluable foundation for postgraduate study or a dynamic career within this area.

Your learning

This programme is research-focused and as such you can expect to spend much of your time either in wet laboratories, where you will handle chemicals and biological materials, or in dry laboratories, where computer simulations and exercises are carried out.

You will also take part in seminars, presentations, lectures and small-group tutorials, and you will use an online learning environment (Moodle) to support your studies.

Assessment

Your assessment will include a combination of examinations, coursework, practical work, tutorial work and presentations. You will also produce laboratory and research reports, posters and dissertations. Many modules have in-course tests (web-based or written) and most (but not all) modules have an unseen final examination.

Careers

Throughout your degree you will acquire a range of specific and transferable skills, including time management and planning, technical laboratory competencies such as manual dexterity and analysis of data, and skills in teamwork, negotiation and decision-making. Research skills are highlighted in years three and four.

Our graduates have found themselves in fields as diverse as toxicology, clinical biochemistry, drug and food research, industrial biotechnology, virus research, cancer research and agricultural research.

MSci graduates have similar opportunities to those students graduating from the BSc. However, the main focus of this degree is to produce first class research scientists able to progress to a PhD or partake in cutting-edge biosciences research.
