Months of entry
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 a research project, 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.
