What will I learn?

This degree will give you specialist knowledge of biochemistry along with a broad grounding in the other molecular biosciences. This course is one of a range of courses in the molecular biosciences offered by the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. You can graduate after three years with a BSc degree, or you can choose the optional fourth year, which leads to an MBiolSci qualification. The four-year MBiolSci has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology, has more focus on laboratory skills, and includes an extensive research project, which can be based in a university or industrial lab. You can transfer in either direction between the three and four-year course during years one to three. Many of our graduates are employed in pharmaceuticals and health care, food safety and manufacture, brewing and agrochemicals, forensic science and as NHS scientists. Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting, in part, the academic and experience requirement of membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol). They also work in education, the scientific civil service, bioinformatics or medical schools. Others use their skills in management and commerce. Many choose further study and go on to do research for organisations all over the world.
