BSc Molecular Biology (2nd Year Entry Only)

Similar to Biochemistry, Molecular Biology is a look at life at the molecular level but concentrating more of the genome and proteome, structure function and regulation.

Molecular Biology

There is a little less chemistry involved in this subject, but with greater emphasis on the detailed control of gene expression and protein function. It is a major area of biomedical research at both the molecular and cellular level.


Degree Information

After completing the First year of BSc Biochemistry or BSc Biomedical Sciences, it is possible to transfer on to the BSc Molecular Biology specialist degree.

  • Please see our Biochemistry or Biomedical Sciences page for further information regarding year 1 study (including admissions requirements).
  • For information regarding study in years 2 and 3, please see the course outline below.
