Chemistry is at the heart of biology and this degree is attractive to students who want to combine their favourite subjects of Chemistry and Biology and, hence, understand the chemistry underlying the animal and plant kingdoms. Animals and plants are composed of biological cells, which are complex entities whose functions and communications are controlled by messenger molecules. Graduates are full chemistry students who have a specialism in biochemistry, cell biology and biological chemistry at an advanced level. The opportunity to transfer to Chemistry with Pharmaceutical Chemistry is available up to the beginning of Year 3.
Accredited by the Royal Society of Chemistry for partially meeting the academic criteria for Chartered Chemist (CChem).
