Course summary

Biochemistry is a pivotal degree discipline in the modern world and a fundamental element of all the biological sciences. Biochemistry is the study of living systems at the molecular level, and biochemists study the ways in which cells and organisms are formed. This involves examining the structure and function of molecules found in living systems, as well as experimental investigations of the properties of biological systems ranging in complexity from cell extracts to whole organisms, and elucidating the roles of specific genes in the cells in which they are expressed.This course will give you the skills and knowledge to establish yourself in a range of careers related to biochemistry, including the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology industries. The foundation of the course is our thriving research in diverse areas of biochemistry including biotechnology, cancer biology, membrane transport, molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, plant biochemistry, and protein structure.In this degree you will gain a sound foundation in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and analytical biochemical techniques.The general principles of biochemistry and cell biology and human physiology are established at Credit Level 4. Your understanding of molecular biology and genetics, metabolism, protein chemistry and enzyme function and other aspects of cellular function are then developed at Credit Levels 5 and 6. A number of options are also offered, allowing you to pursue your own interests within biochemistry and its associated disciplines.Your laboratory and research skills will be developed throughout your degree, culminating in your final-year project in which you will undertake original research of your own.Learning and teaching opportunities are a mixture of face-to-face teaching (lectures, seminars, tutorials and practicals), independent work, laboratory work and online support activities.The range of assessment methods includes exams, laboratory practicals, essays, blogs, posters and presentations.
