Course summary

Our Chemistry with Biomedicine BSc degree will give you a strong theoretical and experimental understanding of chemistry. You’ll explore the different strands of chemistry and apply them to biological and biomedical systems - all under the guidance of our research-led scientists. This course is designed to train the next generation of articulate, flexible and biomedically aware chemists for a wide variety of careers starting with chemical, biotech and pharmaceutical industries and extending to wide careers such as finance, law and media.

Key benefits

  • Accredited by the Royal Society for Chemistry.
  • The only London university to combine Chemistry and Biomedicine, taking advantage of King’s strengths in biomedical research.
  • You’ll benefit from research-enriched teaching from internationally renowned scientists and researchers.
  • You’ll have access to our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, located in the heart of London.

Our course integrates the teaching of core chemical principles with techniques from biomedical research, all illustrated with examples taken from the very broad range of chemical biology and biomedicine research and practice at King’s. The course starts with the principles of physical, organic and inorganic chemistry, with additional maths to ensure you can successfully handle advanced physical and computational chemistry. It incorporates an integrated laboratory course that brings together the different strands of chemistry. In your third year, you will study a range of specialised modules in order to investigate particular aspects of the application of chemical principles to biological and biomedical problems. Our academics have expertise in a wide range of research areas, including chemical biology, biomolecular spectroscopy, computational methods, materials science and nanotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences, analytical chemistry, and a wide range of developmental and cell biology.

Employability

Our Chemistry graduates are in high demand because employers recognise the wide range of skills that they possess. We train Chemists to think logically and apply mathematical and practical techniques to solve real problems. Our ambition is to produce graduates who have a wider vision of the applications of chemistry for the coming decades and who are equipped for flexible careers to adapt to the changing global and national challenges facing Chemistry. Graduates from our course can be found in a range of sectors where they can exploit their skills and expertise including research, management, finance, medicine and law.
