Study a Biochemistry degree abroad in 2024

Biochemistry is fundamentally the branch of science that brings together both chemistry and biology. It is often practised inside a laboratory and occurs when chemical processes are used to solve biological problems related to living organisms.

Lots of people decide to study biochemistry due to the great effects it can have on the world and the environment, and the variety of life sciences it allows students to explore. Students have the choice of studying biochemistry at the undergraduate or postgraduate level, with multiple study modes available.

The most common biochemistry degree is an undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree. This type of degree takes three years of full time study to complete and they are heavily focused on the principles of chemistry and biology. Common topics covered throughout a biochemistry degree include cell biology, structure of molecules, neurobiology, biochemical techniques, enzymology and microbiology.

In the latter stages of the program students will be able to specialise in various areas of biochemistry that they are particularly interested in. Some programs also allow for students to study a four year course with a year abroad, or a year in the industry.

Other degree types include postgraduate courses which can take as little as 12 months to complete. Normally, students would be required to take an undergraduate degree in biochemistry in order to gain entry to a postgraduate degree. There is also the option to study a foundation degree in biochemistry, or to study biochemistry as part of a combined degree program.
