Direct entry to second year Biochemistry MBiochem (Hons) 2022 entry
It is possible for students applying for the Biochemistry MBiochem single Integrated Masters degree to enter directly into the second year of study, meaning you will complete your degree in only four years instead of five.
This option is offered to students with excellent Advanced Higher, A-Level or International Baccalaureate qualifications.
Students who enter directly into second year will take modules required by the Biochemistry MBiochem programme from the second year on, bypassing first-year modules entirely. Direct entry students will also take Introductory Chemistry for Second Year Direct Entry Students.
Direct entry students will have the opportunity to study abroad during their second year of study and to go on an external placement during the third year of study.
To find out more information, or to discuss the possibility of direct entry to second year, please contact the School of Biology.
Students must have studied Biology (or Human Biology) and Chemistry at SQA Advanced Highers, GCE A-Level, or equivalent. Preference will be given to candidates offering strong science qualifications over and above the stated minimum requirements.
