    Course Summary

    A BSc degree in Biochemistry from the University of Kent will give you a thorough understanding of physiology, microbiology and molecular biology, as well as a mastery of both cell biology and biochemistry more generally.

    An important feature of this program is the year spent abroad. This will give you not just a more international.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Kent is well known for its innovative teaching methods. These typically the application of IT to lecture classes (making the entire content available for later review), specially developed academic animations, and communication-themed  projects in the final years, enabling graduates to more easily share their work with the public and their own students.

    Modules are typically assessed using both coursework and examinations. The course work accounts for 30% of the final grade, and the remaining 70% comes from the end of term examination.

    Career Possiblities

    Graduates of Kent’s Biochemistry BSc program often go into teaching, IT, marketing or scientific publishing. However, a fair portion stay in academia at least long enough to main their MSc or PhD degrees. The Biosciences programs at Kent were ranked #1 for graduate prospects by the 2018 Times Good University Guide.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    This BSc program typically requires applicants to have achieved 3 A Levels of ABB or better, or one of a number of equivalent academic certifications. At least one B must be in Chemistry, and one other in either Human Biology or Applied Science.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students                         

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated by a good IELTS score or with one of several equivalent exams. See the specific requirements here.
