The B.S. in Biochemistry (Hons) at University of Huddersfield helps students to gain relevant real-world experience and enhance their future employability prospects.


About the Biochemistry (Hons) program offered by University of Huddersfield

The course is the starting point for many areas of further study and application in the industry.

Biochemistry is the investigation of the chemical processes that leads to life and the processes of metabolic regulation, nervous integration and information storage by biochemical systems. The ability of biological machines to reproduce and pass on information of our evolutionary history are all driven by chemical processes that are in themselves becoming very well understood and well characterised at the molecular level. 

This course is a good combination of biology and chemistry and the career options to go into later are wide and varied.

You’ll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using scientific instrumentation in our modern biological sciences labs. In the third year of your course, you’ll also have the chance to benefit from a work placement. This could help you to gain relevant real-world experience and enhance your future employability prospects.


Graduates from our Biological Sciences courses can consider a wide range of career options in areas such as medical research, the NHS, molecular sciences, medical genetics, pharmaceuticals, developing scientific patents, medical sales or marketing, medical writing and teaching.

Previous graduates have gone on to work in roles such as Clinical Bioinformatician at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Laboratory Technician at ALS, Microbiology Medical Laboratory Technician at IDEXX Laboratories and Nuclear Medicine Sales Executive at Bartec Technologies.
