The Bachelor’s degree programme in Biochemistry is the first part of a research-orientated Bachelor’s and Master’s programme. An essential function of the Bachelor’s degree programme is to prepare students for the consecutive Master’s degree programme in Biochemistry or the acquisition of further qualifications in related disciplines. To this end, the Bachelor’s degree programme aims to give students an initial, broad grounding in the subdisciplines of chemistry, and ensure that they understand elements of mathematics and physics required for the study of biochemistry. Once students have gained this foundational knowledge, they move on to gain comprehensive theoretical and methodological knowledge, as well as practical skills in the various subdisciplines of biochemistry. In addition, they are introduced to topical issues within the field of biochemical research.
