Biochemistry deals with the way living organisms function at the molecular level. How do living organisms work? How are they built, controlled, repaired, supplied with energy, etc.? Life is found in many forms ranging from comparatively simple viruses and bacteria to mammals like ourselves where the complicated integration of metabolism in different tissues is necessary.

Biochemistry is an ideal degree if you aspire to a research career in a life sciences area; also teaching, business, publishing, marketing, information technology, etc using key transferable skills.

The programme offers 4-year Sandwich Year or Year Abroad variants, and there are opportunities to undertake a summer research studentship at the end of the second year.
