    Description

    This is a single Honours programme run between the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Chemistry. In the early stages it provides a sound foundation in the chemical principles that underlie biochemistry and introduces aspects of cellular and molecular biology. In the second year, a wide range of courses is offered by both Schools which provides you with the opportunity to bias your degree programme towards biology or chemistry as suits your interests. In the final year, specialist courses are available which deal with current developments in various biochemically-related fields, such as medicinal chemistry, plant or microbial biotechnology and protein engineering. Final year research projects in some of these fields may be carried out in either School or in the affiliated Institutes.
    In both the second and third years you also have 20 credits of Free Choice which allows you to select from a huge range of units offered by BIO and other Schools within the University.

    Course Content

    Biochemistry is fundamental to many other areas of contemporary biology and this implies that biochemists are often required to, and are capable of, spanning the borders of biology, chemistry and sometimes physics. This is reflected in the biochemistry degree at UEA, which is taught jointly by the School of Biological Sciences and the School of Chemistry. The key feature of our courses is the flexibility and choice we offer. You will have the opportunity to tailor your degree to match your own interests and career aspirations. The programme offers comprehensive coverage of the fundamentals of biology and chemistry, which underpin the study of biochemistry.

    You can choose from a broad range of modules encompassing cell and molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, microbiology, protein engineering and biotechnology in line with your requirements and interests.

    Year 1

    You will receive an introduction to many aspects of biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and genetics, as well as training in the fundamental chemical and mathematical principles that underpin the study of biochemistry. This provides a firm foundation on which to build during your honors years.

    Year 2

    In the second year of your study you will be able to tailor your degree to match your interests in the biological or chemical facets of biochemistry by choosing from our wide range of higher level courses.
    Please note that the Year in Industry is taken between years 2 and 3 (see page 9 for more details).

    Year 3

    In your final year you will have the opportunity to put the skills you have learned into practice by undertaking a research project in collaboration with internationally recognised research groups working in the School of Biological Sciences, School of Chemistry or one of the affiliated research institutes located on the Norwich Research Park.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Students for whom English is a Foreign language

    We welcome applications from students from all academic backgrounds. We require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading). Recognised English Language qualifications include:

    • IELTS: 6. overall (minimum 5.5 in any component)
    • TOEFL: Internet-based score of 78 overall (minimum 20 in Speaking component, 17 in Writing and Listening components and 18 in Reading components.
    • PTE: 55 overall (minimum 51 in any component).

    If you do not meet the University's entry requirements, our INTO Language Learning Centre offers a range of university preparation courses to help you develop the high level of academic and English skills necessary for successful undergraduate study.

    Interviews

    The majority of candidates will not be called for an interview. However, for some students an interview will be requested. These are normally quite informal and generally cover topics such as your current studies, reasons for choosing the course and your personal interests and extra-curricular activities.

    Gap Year

    We welcome applications from students who have already taken or intend to take a gap year, believing that a year between school and university can be of substantial benefit. You are advised to indicate your reason for wishing to defer entry and may wish to contact the appropriate Admissions Office directly to discuss this further.

    Special Entry Requirements

    A2-level Chemistry and Grade B in AS Level Maths or Physics are required for this course. In addition to this, applicants are asked to have two other A2-level subjects. General Studies and Critical Thinking are not accepted.

    Alternative Qualifications

    We encourage you to apply if you have alternative qualifications equivalent to our stated entry requirement. Please contact us for further information.
    Pass the Access to HE Diploma with Distinction in 36 credits at Level 3 and Merit in 9 credits at Level 3, including 12 Level 3 credits in Chemistry and 6 Level 3 credits in either Maths or Physics.

    GCSE Offer

    Students are required to have GCSE Mathematics at Grade B and English Language at Grade C.

    Work Experience

    No work experience is required.
