This prospectus lists Biochemistry and related degree courses starting in 2010, ordered alphabetically by 
institution. Choosing which degree to study is an important decision, this guide is designed to help outline the 
different types of Biochemistry courses available and the entry requirements for each institution in order to help 
you make an informed choice. The website for each institution is also listed. For further details on the courses 
available and additional information about the institution, please visit these sites.

What is Biochemistry? 
 
Biochemistry is the ‘Chemistry of Life’. It is central to all areas of the Biological or Life Sciences. Studying 
Biochemistry provides an understanding of every aspect of the structure and function of living things at the 
molecular level. It is a laboratory based science that applies chemistry to biological systems. 
 
What does studying Biochemistry normally involve? * 
 
A Biochemistry course will normally involve a broad first year, moving on to more detailed optional modules in 
the latter years. Teaching will involve a combination of practical sessions, usually in laboratories, taught classes 
and lectures. Subjects you can expect to cover at degree level include: 
 
 
  • Cell Biology and signalling  • Biochemical techniques 
  • Genetics and DNA  • Plant biochemistry 
  • Molecular biology  • Miscrobiology and viruses 
  • Enzymology  • Disease mechanisms 
  • Proteins and membranes  • Metabolism 
  • Neurobiology 
 
 
* Please refer to individual institutions for programme outlines 
 
 
 
 
Which course type to choose? 
 
There are different types of courses available, from three year BSc courses, to four year Masters courses or 
sandwich courses. Below is a description of each to help you decide which level is appropriate. 
 
BSc/BA courses  
 
These are usually three years full time study (four years in Scotland). The course provides a good science basis, 
after which students can go onto take part in post‐graduate study or numerous scientific or other careers. 
Previous scientific qualifications are needed. 
 
MSci/ MBiolSci/MChem/MEng courses  
 
These courses are normally four years full time study (five years in Scotland). The final year involves a more in‐
depth study of the subject in order to enhance the qualification to a higher Masters level. Most courses will 
involve an extensive research project. All the courses have the same Masters status, the title simply distinguishes 
what area it specializes in. 
 
Foundation courses  
 
These courses offer a broad introductory year covering the more basic scientific disciplines. They are suitable for 
students who have either not studied the required subjects to start a Biochemistry degree, or those looking for a 
change in career who need basic scientific training before beginning a degree course. 
 
 
 
Combined Biochemistry courses 
 
Biochemistry “and” courses, such as Biochemistry and Business Studies, generally involve a fifty/fifty split on 
teaching and studies between the two subjects. Biochemistry “with” courses, such as Biochemistry with French, 
are more focused on Biochemistry, with a third of the teaching dedicated to the second subject. When choosing a 
combined course it is important to consider how this might effect future careers options. Many scientific jobs 
may only be available to students with single subject degrees, where more time is allocated to practical 
laboratory skills and Biochemistry theory. For further information on what combined courses will involve, the 
relevant institution should be able to provide details. 
 
Biochemistry with a sandwich year/industrial experience 
 
Courses with a sandwich year or year in industry are normally four years in duration. They are generally made up 
of two years full time study, with a third year working in a professional discipline, then the fourth is back in full 
time study. Courses such as these provide beneficial work experience for students who want to continue working 
in science related areas. 
 
Biochemistry with a year abroad 
 
These courses generally involve a total of four years study, with the penultimate year spent abroad, and the final 
year is then spent back in the UK. These courses provide experience of living and studying abroad, plus the 
opportunity to use and develop language skills which may be useful in future careers.
