About Biochemistry at University of Sheffield

This degree will give you specialist knowledge of biochemistry along with a broad grounding in the other molecular biosciences.

In the first year, you'll take a broad-based programme that covers a range of areas in the molecular biosciences. At the end of the first year, before you specialise in years two and three, you're free to transfer between any of the courses in the department. You're not tied to the degree you originally registered for.

In the second year, you'll study your chosen subjects in more depth and develop your practical skills. In the third year there is a practical project. This could involve laboratory research, computing, clinical diagnostics, science communication, or school teaching, depending on your career aspirations.

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.

This course is one of a range of courses in the molecular biosciences offered by the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.

If you want to study biochemistry, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Biosciences with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
