Department of Biochemistry


Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge is part of the wider Natural Sciences programme. Rather than applying for 'Biochemistry', you need to apply for 'Natural Sciences'.  The university admissions website gives a good overview of the current Natural Sciences course and how Biochemistry fits in this framework.

There is full information on how to apply for the Natural Sciences, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine courses, on the University's admissions website.
