Biochemistry BSc Hons
Biochemistry examines the structure and function of living organisms at the molecular level. It is an exciting and rapidly developing subject and the primary investigative science within biology and medicine.
Our three-year biochemistry degree includes core modules in biochemistry and chemistry combined with modules in related fields. You can choose a pathway within the degree that will allow you to focus on biochemistry or with specialization in genetics or biomedicine.
Lancaster University is ranked fourth in the UK for biosciences and fifth in the UK for chemistry in the Guardian University Guide 2020. We are also ranked in the top ten in the UK for biological sciences and chemistry in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.
In the first year, you will study a range of core modules designed to provide you with a broad overview of biology and chemistry and a good foundation in key modern biochemical concepts. You will take three additional modules in your chosen pathway to maintain a focus on biochemistry and chemistry or have specialization in either genetics or biomedicine.
Throughout your degree, you can continue on your chosen pathway or you have the flexibility to change from the focused biochemistry pathway to those specializing in genetics or biomedicine.
In your second year, you will focus on a range of biochemistry modules, as well as some more practically oriented modules designed to equip you with the laboratory skills and knowledge required by a successful biochemist.
Your third year builds on your chosen pathway and may include options such as Innovation in the Biosciences (biochemistry or genetics pathways) and Neurobiology (biochemistry or biomedicine pathways).
During your degree, you will conduct your own laboratory-based project and benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academics. The facilities for studying biochemistry at Lancaster University are excellent. We have invested over £4 million in new life science teaching laboratories, which you will use for practical learning and your dissertation project.
Note:- The MSci is a four-year integrated master with three years of undergraduate study followed by a year of study at the master’s level. The additional year of study and higher qualification can enhance your job prospects, or give you the experience to decide whether a research career might be for you.
