Biochemistry has become the foundation for understanding all biological processes. The knowledge and methods developed by biochemists are applied to all fields of medicine, in agriculture and in many chemical and health related industries. Biochemistry is also unique in providing teaching and research in both protein structure and function, and genetic engineering, the two basic components of the rapidly expanding field of biotechnology.
You can opt to take this course with a year of study in the USA; an exchange programme with the University of Toledo in Ohio, which has been running for over 30 years. The University of Toledo was named as a top global player when it comes to taking biotechnology research from the laboratory to the world, and has been recognised by the American Society of Landscape Architects as one of the 22 most beautiful landscaped campuses in the United States.
This course will provide you with sound training and equip you with many of the personal and practical skills you will need for your future career.
It is a flexible course designed to offer you plenty of choice so that you can either study a broad range of topics or specialise in particular areas of biochemistry.
In Year 1 you will study a range of topics in six modules covering both theory and practice.
Year 2In year 2 at the University of Toledo, you will study a range of modules similar to those offered in year 2 of the degree at Salford. You will be supported by a tutor based in Salford whom you will have had as your 1st year tutor. You will also be supported by a local tutor in Toledo.
Choose one module from the following:
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
