BSc Medical Biochemistry / Careers

Year of entry: 2019

Career opportunities

Many pharmaceutical and healthcare companies require well-trained medical biochemists, making this area a promising one for our graduates' careers.

Our graduates become key employees in the efforts of such companies to develop new drugs targeted against specific enzymes, hormone receptors or other biologically important molecules. 

As an alternative to entering industry directly, many medical biochemistry graduates continue their careers via a PhD programme, or by taking a specialist master's course in, for example, bioinformatics.
