The majority of career opportunities for biochemists are in the biopharmaceutical, biomedical, analytical science areas, and also in pure and applied research across the broad biochemistry, cell biology and biomedical science areas. The undergraduate degree is a strong basis for teaching biology and is recognised by the Teaching Council. Biochemistry is also an excellent stepping stone degree to careers in other areas including medicine, pharmacy, sales and management.
Students who have taken second science Chemistry with BC2001, BC2002, and ML2001 may apply to the Head of the School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, by the first Friday in August, to transfer to the third year Biochemistry degree programme. Awarding of places is subject to the approval of the Head of the School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology and will be included in the Biochemistry quota of 30 places.
Please complete the "Transfer from Second Science Chemistry UCC to Third Science Biochemistry Degree Programme” application form (Transfer Form - 2nd Chemistry to 3rd Biochemistry (54kB)) and submit to the School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology Administration office 3.19, Western Gateway Building, Western Rd, UCC.
