Biochemical understanding is fundamental to all biological disciplines. While much of modern biochemistry aims to provide an understanding of fundamental biological processes at a molecular level, it also contributes to the solving of medical problems and the discovery of safe and effective drugs.This Biochemistry course from The University of Manchester is a research-focused course that uses an interactive approach to learning through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and research placements rather than a traditional lecture-based format.
You will undertake two research projects, as well as units covering science communication and experimental design and statistics. You will also attend tutorials where you will learn about biosciences research at Manchester and a workshop on bioethics.
Our graduates acquire a wide range of subject-specific and transferable skills, as well as extensive laboratory research experience.
Graduates typically enter professional careers in research, the health service or industrial environments.
Manchester has a strong record of placing students in PhD programmes at the University and other universities.
