At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees.
In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Biochemistry and Medicinal Chemistry.
“Chemistry is technically the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of Change. It’s solution, then dissolution, over and over and over. It is fascinating, really.”Read this article to get a hang of Chemistry in everyday life. While some may be obvious, some other might surprise you.
Now just think about this: Electrons change their energy levels, molecules change their bonds, elements combine and change their compounds.
There are three types of module delivered as part of this programme.
They are: Biochemistry - A summary of the total credit requirements per year is as follows, with a minimum of 90 subject credits (compulsory plus optional) required for each year across both of your Principal Subjects.
In Year 2 the knowledge and skills acquired in Year 1 are developed with an increasing emphasis on the need to integrate knowledge and critically evaluate experimental evidence in solving theoretical and practical problems.
In practical classes, new practical skills are developed and an increasing emphasis is placed on critical evaluation of experimental design and the analysis of complex data from multiple sources, including computational theoretical calculations and the scientific peer-reviewed literature.
Students taking Biochemistry and a subject outside of the School of Life Sciences: Life Sciences Single Experimental Project (with research skills assessment) Or Life Sciences Dissertation Or Single Applied Life Sciences Placement The Applied Life Sciences Placement modules may replace Life Sciences Experimental Project (with research skills assessment) modules if the nature of the placement is deemed suitable and the work carried out meets the criteria of the research project module.
If a student fails the Life Sciences double experimental project module (or the alternative Double Applied Life Science placement module) but has it condoned, then they will not be eligible for an RSB accredited degree, but shall instead be eligible for the award BSc Studies in Biochemistry Medicinal Chemistry Year 3 (Level 6) In Year 3, increasingly sophisticated theories and ideas are introduced which require you to draw upon, integrate and extend the fundamental chemical principles introduced during Years 1 and 2.
