Biochemistry courses

We offer Biochemistry degrees with the option to specialise in areas such as Genetics and Medical Biochemistry.


Our Biochemistry courses build on a suite of shared modules. After a first year with preset modules, you can increasingly follow the content that interests you most.

The 4-year options add distinct opportunities to expand your training, for instance by doing an industry-based project during the Year in Industry (Professional Placement), or adding an international dimension to your qualification through the Year in Europe or International Year options. Finally, if you are interested in a career in research you might explore the Biochemistry MSci option, which adds a research-focused Masters year to the standard 3-year course.


The Collaborative Teaching Laboratory is a brand new state-of-the-art facility designed to support the latest methods in laboratory teaching for STEM subjects.

We are proud to be a Teaching Innovation Awards winner for developing virtual lab-casting to enable effective remote and in-lab teamworking activities in the Collaborative Teaching Laboratory (CTL).
