Biochemistry, MBiochem Hons FullTime

The course is generally interesting, and the teaching staff are generally good at their jobs, but some topics are given far more time than they need, and some of the harder ones are only given a couple of lectures, leaving people confused. Often instructions for coursework aren't given clearly, but otherwise communication with staff is good. read more
