Course summary

The study of how cells work at the molecular and sub-molecular levels has been described as the basis of modern medicine. Medical biochemists develop new ideas and products that are applied to the biggest health challenges we face today. The Medical Biochemistry course with integrated Foundation is intended for students who have studied Chemistry and Biology, though we will consider students without biology qualifications at Alevel. If you don’t make or are predicted lower entry requirements than our 3 year degree, this foundation adds an additional year of intense tuition to ready you to progress to undergraduate study. This course will appeal to students who are enthusiastic about understanding the molecular basis of life processes and disease in humans. This degree will:• train you to work in areas such as cancer research, medical laboratories and the pharmaceutical industry.• prepare you for further study that enables you to take up research positions in industry.• provide you with transferable skills, including team working, communication, presentation, problem-solving, and analytical skills.In the final year, you will complete a research project under the guidance of a professional research scientist. By working as an independent researcher, you will develop effective project management skills and will be trained to design experiments and plan work programmes.The Medical Biochemistry degree provides excellent training for students who wish to undertake further study to become a medical doctor. Many of our students who decided to follow this career path have successfully gone on to study Graduate Entry Medicine at Swansea. This degree will equip you with the skills and knowledge to work in the biotechnology, agrochemical and food industries. Our graduates have gone on to employment or further study in: university research, industrial research & development, clinical sciences, teaching, forensics, scientific management, medical sales, scientific publicity.
