University of Cambridge: Biological Science (Biochemistry) by thesis

Institution University of Cambridge
Department Biology
Study type Research


The Department offers a one-year full-time MPhil programme, by research, leading to the Master of Philosophy in Biological Science (Biochemistry). This is also available as a part-time option over two years. Currently, we do not run a Masters course by instruction, involving classes and examinations.

The aim of this MPhil degree is to give candidates a grounding in modern biochemical and biomedical research techniques, practical experience of a year-long, full-time experimental research project, and skills in scientific communication through both oral presentations and writing.

Learning Outcomes

The successful completion of the MPhil in Biochemistry by research prepares students for a wide range of future career opportunities ranging from PhD studies to industrial research and ancillary work such as dealing with intellectual property and patents. The student will have the opportunity to attain a high level of expertise in biochemical methodology and research strategy.
