What will you study on the BSc Medical Biochemistry/MSci Clinical Biochemistry?

This course covers the field of biochemistry with a focus on human biology and medicine and includes core themes from a wide range of science subjects including chemistry, molecular biology and immunology. Laboratory, research and diagnostic methods will be developed throughout the course. You will learn practical skills in analytical and diagnostic techniques applicable in a wide range of fields including industry and research.


The course will provide you with opportunities to test your knowledge and understanding informally through ‘formative’ assessment. This will be completed before your formal ‘summative’ assessment which will count towards your final marks. Each module normally contains at least one piece of formative assessment from which you will receive feedback from your tutor. Formative assessments are developmental and any grade you receive from formative assessment does not count towards your final marks.

There is formal ‘summative’ assessment as part of the module, usually towards the end of the module. Assessment methods could include portfolios, presentations, laboratory reports, problem solving reports, case study analysis, essays and written examinations as well as in your final year laboratory or field research project. The grades from the summative assessments count towards your module mark. Assessments are reviewed annually and may be updated based on student feedback, to suit content or based on feedback from an external examiner.


How can the BSc Medical Biochemistry/MSci Clinical Biochemistry support your career?

The course will provide you with a range of academic and professional skills to prepare you for a wide range of relevant careers including working in hospitals or private laboratories in the health sector, research institutions or the pharmaceutical or biotech industry. Optional modules and individual assignments will allow you to design your course to focus on your career aspirations.

You could also choose to continue your studies at postgraduate or PhD level.

Industry links will be available through individual tutors and the placement office, excursions may be offered and you will have the option to go on an industrial placement. You will also be encouraged to become student members of the Biochemical Society during your studies.
