The Biochemistry degree at Queen’s University Belfast, investigates the structures, functions and biological roles of molecules involved in metabolism, cell signalling and the transmission of genetic information. Research-led teaching and the opportunity to complete an integrated Master programme, help prepare our students for a career in biochemical research.
Throughout Stages 1 and 2 of the BSc Biochemistry degree, practical classes in Biochemistry reinforce and complement the theory, providing students with the solid foundation on which to build upon for Stage 3.
BSc Biochemistry students can transfer to the BSc Biochemistry with Professional Studies programme if they wish to take a year-long work placement and may be eligible to transfer to the same named MSci degree pathways provided they meet certain requirements.
