Students enrolled in the BSc in Biochemistry and Cell Biology (BCB) explore how biomolecules, the fundamental building blocks of all living organisms, work harmoniously within cells (Cell Biology) and cell-free experimental systems (Biochemistry). The early curriculum is broad-based, teaching students the fundamental concepts and principles of BCB. This enables students to explore and develop their own interests in various aspects of modern molecular life science. As they progress through the program, they take more advanced and specialized elective courses. BCB students are also invited to engage in intensive practical training and offered invaluable research opportunities.
The BCB program enables students to build a firm foundation in various aspects of modern biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and genetics. It also nurtures students who are motivated to pursue postgraduate training and research careers in both academic and industry sectors.
