Education


The Biochemical Society aims to inspire and engage young people in the molecular biosciences. We do this by delivering a diverse program of events and activities; from school science websites, outreach events, studentship grants, conferences for teachers, disseminating careers information and scientific training for PhD students and early career researchers. Read on to find out more about what we offer.

School students

 

We support education from 15 years upwards. Find out what biochemistry is, what qualifications and work experience you may need to pursue biochemistry as a career, read career profiles of biochemists and find out which universities offer biochemistry courses.
