Skip to 0 minutes and 1 secondIn this MOOC we've discussed only a small number of examples of the wide array of areas of biochemistry and the subsequent relevant careers and career opportunities. It is important to remember that biochemistry is relevant to many, many other the topics and opportunities, as we have tried to show you with a small flavor of the various interests and opportunities across the Norwich research park and worldwide. We've given you an indication of the very many fields of science that have been advanced by biochemical knowledge, including in key areas such as forensic science, neurobiology and pharmacology.
Skip to 0 minutes and 34 secondsBiochemists are not only teaching and researching in universities but also play a leading roles in hospitals, food institutes and many industrial, especially pharmacological, laboratories, designing and producing everything from cosmetics to pharmaceuticals, right across to addressing key issues such as bioenergy and the future fate of our planet. Many other trained biochemists also pursue careers in teaching, publishing, sales and marketing and even within governmental structures and policymaking So, a fundamental training in biochemistry provides you with that great opportunity to develop a very broad range of essential, transferable skills that are keenly sought after by potential employers, both within the bioscience sector and beyond.
Skip to 1 minute and 28 secondsBiochemistry graduates are able to demonstrate advanced analytical, communicative, numerical and problem solving skills that are fundamental attributes of business leaders, financiers, lawyers and teachers, and many others. We would just like to conclude by saying that we hope everyone has enjoyed studying on this MOOC as much as we've enjoyed putting it together for you. We hope that everyone who has come this far will continue to find biochemistry to be fascinating and wish them every success in the future whichever path they may take.

Want a certificate?
On completing the course you have the option to buy a Certificate of Achievement or a Statement of Participation to show you took part.
A Certificate of Achievement includes your name; a detailed outline of what you’ve learned and how long it took; the logos of the University of East Anglia and the Biochemistry Society. Your printed certificate will also include the lead educator’s signature. To be eligible, you must complete 90% of the steps, attempt every test question, and score over 70% on average across all tests.
A Statement of Participation includes your name; a short summary of the course and how long it took; the logos of the University of East Anglia and the Biochemistry Society. The Statement will confirm that you’ve completed the majority of steps and attempted all test questions, but unlike the Certificate it will not show your individual level of completion or your test scores. To be eligible, you need to have completed the majority of steps and all of the tests.
Post Course Survey
We would really appreciate you completing the FutureLearn post-course survey. It asks about your experience on Biochemistry: the Molecules of Life and will help us to keep improving it. We hope you’ll also find it useful to further reflect on your experience on the course.
You can exit the survey at any time using the button in the top righthand corner of the screen. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
