During the Biochemistry programme at the University of Copenhagen you address biochemical and molecular biology problems experimentally and theoretically within four academic fields of your own choosing: Molecular Cell Biology and Immunology, Protein Chemistry, Molecular Microbiology or Molecular Genetics.
As an MSc in Biochemistry, you will have an internationally recognised research-based education geared towards research and teaching at the highest level.
You can find employment at universities, institutions of higher education, within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, at hospital laboratories or in the public sector.
You can also continue your research and obtain a PhD in Denmark or abroad. Unemployment among graduates with an MSc in Biochemistry has been low for several years.
