Overview

Why choose this course?

  • Research-informed teaching, with practical work in modern labs
  • Explore each Bioscience pathway before specialising 
  • This Biochemistry (Hons) programme at University of Hertfordshire is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology  
  • Ever wonder what is happening inside your cells at the molecular and cellular level? The chemistry behind biological processes? You’ll learn how biochemists use their understanding of biomolecules and cellular pathways to prevent and cure disease, analyse samples, and develop new molecular products. Another part is the application and understanding of techniques, such as sequencing DNA or observing single molecules in action. 
  • Use our strong industry links to get your foot in the door of pharmaceutical, agrochemical or food and drink industries. Build a solid understanding of chemistry from practising scientists. Practise microbiological techniques and blood analysis in a newly built laboratory space. You will also have exclusive access to computer labs with specific software and databases. 
  • While you’ll be exploring many new areas in this degree, we’ll guide you along the way. Lecturers are always happy to help and your personal tutor will guide you to gain general skills in scientific writing, data interpretation and communication. Workshops will take place to practice lecture material and discuss problems with your peers.
