Biochemistry is the study of the molecular basis of life. Through this Biochemistry BSc course, students will be introduced to all areas of modern biochemistry. They will gain the practical knowledge and skills needed to work in a scientific research environment, as well as transferable skills to begin a career in a wide variety of fields both in science and beyond. The course also features options to study abroad, undertake work placement or extend to a four-year MSci. This course forms part of the suite of ‘Common Year 1’ courses within the School of Bioscience Education. These comprise Anatomy, Developmental & Human Biology; Biochemistry; Biomedical Science; Medical Physiology; Molecular Genetics, Neuroscience; Pharmacology. Once students have successfully completed year one, students can choose to switch to any other course within this suite. In the second and third years students will focus on applications of biochemistry for understanding human disease, the biochemical and biophysical techniques used in understanding biological processes and the relationship between protein structure and function. In Year 2 students may also choose to study abroad at one of KCL’s partner institutions, or students can apply to undertake an extra-mural or work placement, usually at a leading biomedicine employer. In the third year there is an opportunity to specialise further and to pursue laboratory and/ or library-based projects in areas of current biomedical research. Alternatively, students can apply to transfer to KCL’s four-year Biochemistry MSci course.
