Our MSc Biochemistry course will give you research experience and professional skills in contemporary biochemistry, opening up a future career in industry or academic research.
Biochemical understanding is fundamental to all biological disciplines. While much of modern biochemistry aims to provide an understanding of fundamental biological processes at a molecular level, it also contributes to the solving of medical problems and the discovery of safe and effective drugs.
This is a research-focused course that uses an interactive approach to learning through seminars, workshops, small group tutorials and research placements rather than a traditional lecture-based format.
You will undertake two research projects, as well as units covering science communication and experimental design and statistics. You will also attend tutorials where you will learn about biosciences research at Manchester and a workshop on bioethics.
