What Will You Study

Our Biochemistry with Biomedicine degree is for students with a broad interest in the biochemical processes of life and how these are altered by disease. We have extensive links with local hospitals, both in research activities and in the teaching on our biomedical-based courses.

Your degree begins with a range of modules designed to provide you with a broad overview of both subject disciplines and includes Molecules of Life, Biomedicine and Society, Organic Chemistry, and Anatomy and Tissue Structure.

In your second year, you’ll move on to a range of biochemical and biomedical subjects, with several modules designed to develop key laboratory skills required by scientists in these areas. These modules include Medical Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Genetics.

You can tailor your degree in the final year to match your interests, selecting from a diverse range of subjects including Tropical Diseases, Protein Biochemistry and Biology of Ageing.

During your degree, you’ll conduct your own laboratory-based project where you’ll benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academic staff.
