BSc - Major in Biochemistry


In recent years, over half of our Biochemistry graduates have entered the commercial world and become business professionals, while approximately a third have found employment in occupations related to science, biotechnology and healthcare. Some of our graduates are employed in the education sector, or have become scientific personnel in hospitals and tertiary institutions. A small group of graduates have joined the Civil Services. Each year, a significant number of students (around 30%) take up postgraduate studies and pursue a career in advanced scientific and medical research.

We have been studying the career trends of Biochemistry graduates over the past few years in order to design courses tailoring to the needs of our graduates. Therefore, some courses have stronger elements of applied medical and health sciences, some have broader coverage on biotechnology, protein and genetic engineering, while others focus on current research advances to prepare students for future scientific research careers.
