Overview

The mechanics of life: discover the molecular machinery that lies at the heart of the cell and drives all living organisms. At Worcester, we look at the fascinating world of biochemistry from a variety of angles including human health, plant biology and microbiology.

In the fourth (Masters) year you will undertake a research oriented programme. This opportunity will take full advantage of the academic and commercial research expertise in Biochemistry within the department.

Career opportunities

Globally the employment of Biochemists is set to grow by 19% over the next 10 years. This employment growth is greater than the average for all careers. This means that graduates of Biochemistry have excellent opportunities for employment, with many working as scientific researchers within academic, government, industrial or medical institutions both nationally and internationally.

A degree in Biochemistry at the University of Worcester also provides the foundation for entry to graduate training programmes such as clinical (healthcare) scientist within the NHS, which come with an average starting salary of £25K + per year. The Biochemistry degree is very rich in transferable skills and many graduates may also work in teaching, scientific publishing or in business.

At the University of Worcester, our students come first and we provide workshops to help our graduates enter postgraduate studies at Worcester or other universities.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for graduates to obtain PhD positions with only a BSc (Hons) degree. Graduates with an Integrated Masters degree would have significant additional research expertise that would enable them to progress straight to an MPhil/PhD position.

There is an increasing need for graduates in the UK economy as skilled researchers for UK PLC. Such graduates have much to offer within the general area of applied biological research but also, critically, to drive forward the innovation that is vital for the UK economy.
