What Will You Study

Your degree enables you to study Biochemistry with a focus on the genetic blueprint of life, DNA. The first year consists of a range of modules designed to provide you with a broad overview of both subject disciplines, with modules such as Genetics, Protein Biochemistry, and Human Physiology.

In your second year, you’ll study a range of biochemical and molecular biology subjects including several modules designed to develop key laboratory skills required by scientists in these areas. These modules include Biochemical Techniques, Cell Biology Techniques, and DNA Technology.

As with our other schemes, the final year of your Biochemistry with Genetics degree is designed to allow you to tailor your studies to suit your interests. You’ll be able to select from a diverse range of subjects including Medical Genetics, Protein Biochemistry, and Cancer.

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.
