Biochemistry

About the Biochemistry Certificate

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within living matter. Biochemists are responsible for discovering how these chemical processes work and how all living things function, and then figuring out ways to sustain or improve them. This work is extremely important to the lives of humans, plants, animals and the environment as a whole.

This distance learning biochemistry course has been designed to work as an introduction to certain aspects of biochemistry. Rather than focusing of the science heavy areas, this seven-module long qualification focuses on the practices involved. Students will study modules in topics such as cellular machine tools, importing materials and quality control.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in or learning the principles of biochemistry. Those who want to become a biochemist will first need to obtain a biochemistry degree. However, this course is a great way to find out what’s involved in this career and build basic understanding.

This home learning course has been specifically designed for those with little to no understanding of biochemistry. This means that students won’t need any prior qualifications or experience before they enrol with us. All we ask is that students have the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, students will be awarded a certificate from learndirect. This works as a great starter point for further study in biochemistry.

If students aim to become biochemists or work in other related science roles, they should first work towards a degree in biochemistry. Courses like our Access to HE Diploma in Science can help students get the grades they need for you uni. Graduate careers related to this course include:

  • Biochemist
  • Biomedical scientist
  • Chemist
