More about the course
The Oxford course provides you with a broad and comprehensive training in all aspects of Biochemistry. A key component of the Oxford course is the direct exposure to cutting edge research in the final year, working in the research laboratories of the Biochemistry Department. The Biochemistry Department is one of the largest in the world with about 400 research staff members and some 350 undergraduate members. Researchers are rated as world-leaders in their field.
Why Christ Church? We have an excellent team of teachers/researchers covering complementary aspects of the Biochemistry syllabus, including cellular metabolism, protein chemistry, membrane transport and structural biology. The library facilities in Christ Church are excellent, with the latest texts in the subject updated on a yearly basis. As one of the larger Oxford colleges, Christ Church offers its students a unique and stimulating academic environment, where you will have the chance to meet people from a wide range of backgrounds and studying a variety of subjects.
