Study biochemistry and biomedical science

We're ranked No.4 in London for biosciences (Guardian University League table 2022).


With a degree in biochemistry, you could help solve many of life's biggest challenges, by learning the molecular processes that control life, from molecules (such as DNA and proteins) and cells to the complex structures of whole organisms.

You'll gain extensive practical experience in our laboratories that have recently had a multi-million-pound investment. Our biochemistry course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) and provides a gateway for graduate entry to careers in pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, forensics, medicine and teaching.

Biomedical science

Our biomedical science course could be the ideal course for you if you enjoy laboratory investigation and the monitoring of diseases as you'll gain first-hand experience of a busy research or diagnostic laboratory. This course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and you'll have the opportunity to apply to register as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
