    Course Summary

    A joint honours Biochemistry & Immunology BSc from the University of Strathclyde is a great way to begin your educational journey and to build an expertise in bacteriology, microbiology, pharmaceutical research, industrial immunology, immunopharmacology, cardiovascular medicine or biochemistry more generally.

    This degree looks at how life functions at the molecular level (Biochemistry), and the role of molecular biology in human diseases. At the same time it examines how the body defends against these diseases (Immunology). This is particularly important in diseases where the body attacks its own tissues, such as certain kinds of arthritis, diabetes and allergies.

    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.

    Course Outline

    This course is delivered over 4 years for most students.

    Year 1

    Your first year in the program will see you learning the basic concepts of these disciplines, as well as taking the ‘Being a Biomolecular Scientist’ module, which will teach you many practical skills.

    Core Modules:

    • Bio-Organic Chemistry
    • Cells & their molecules
    • Organisms & Disease
    • Being a Biomolecular Scientist 1

    Year 2

    Here you’ll begin to explore the four pillars of Pharmacology, Immunology, Microbiology and Biochemistry. The continuation of ‘Being a Biomolecular Scientist’ focuses more on problem solving and scientific writing.

    Core Modules:

    • Introduction to Pharmacology
    • Introduction to Microbiology
    • Introduction to Immunology
    • Introduction to Biochemistry
    • Being a Biomolecular Scientist 2

    Year 3

    Here you’ll begin to choose a specialty, and have the opportunity to carry our commercially relevant projects with the university’s biotech and pharmaceutical partners.

    Core Modules:

    • Fundamental Immunology
    • Fundamental Biochemistry
    • Biomedical Immunology
    • Biomedical Biochemistry
    • Being a Biomolecular Scientist 3

    Year 4

    In addition to the standard taught modules, you’ll choose between delivering a research project or a dissertation in your final year.

    Core Modules:

    • Advanced Biochemistry
    • Advanced Immunology
    • Being a Biomolecular Scientist 4

    Optional Modules:

    • Applied Biochemistry
    • Applied Immunology
    • Clinical Biochemistry
    • Clinical Immunology

    Learning And Teaching

    Strathclyde’s Biochemistry & Immunology joint BSc program uses fairly standard learning and teaching methods for the first three years. These consist of lectures, tutorials, computer-based learning and individual study. Your final, honours year will see you carry out a research project and/or dissertation, in addition to taking a handful of very specialised modules.

    Career Possibilities

    More than 87% of Strathclyde’s Biochemistry & Immunology graduates are in advanced study programs or working in their fields within 6 months of graduation. Many are working on their doctorates or towards careers as academic researchers, but others are taking rewarding roles in industry like Lab Technician or Serology Technician at organisations like E&O Diagnostics Limited or Avagen UK Ltd

    Entry Requirements

    for UK and EU-nationals:

    This BSc program typically requires applicants to have achieved 2 A Levels at BB or higher, Scottish Highers at AAABB, or one of a number of equivalent academic certifications. In all cases, Biology and Chemistry achievements should be prevalent.

    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 good performance on one of a wide range of equivalent tests.

    International students must also have earned a degree that is the equivalent of that required for UK and EU students. The requirements can be found here.
