About the Level 3 Biochemistry Certificate

Biochemistry is the study of chemical processes within living matter. Biochemists are responsible for discovering how these chemical processes work and how all living things function, and then figuring out ways to sustain or improve them. This work is extremely important to the lives of humans, plants, animals and the environment as a whole.

This distance learning biochemistry course has been designed to work as an introduction to certain aspects of biochemistry. Rather than focusing of the science heavy areas, this seven-module long qualification focuses on the practices involved. Students will study modules in topics such as cellular machine tools, importing materials and quality control.

Who should study this course?

This course is aimed at individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in or learning the principles of biochemistry. Those who want to become a biochemist will first need to obtain a biochemistry degree. However, this course is a great way to find out what’s involved in this career and build basic understanding.

This home learning course has been specifically designed for those with little to no understanding of biochemistry. This means that students won’t need any prior qualifications or experience before they enrol with us. All we ask is that students have the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this course, students will gain an ABC accredited qualification in biochemistry. They will also be awarded a certificate from Stonebridge College. This qualification works as a great starter point for further study in biochemistry.

If students aim to become biochemists or work in other related science roles, they should first work towards a degree in biochemistry. Courses like our Access to HE Diploma in Science can help students get the grades they need for you uni. Graduate careers related to this course include:

  • Biochemist
  • Biomedical scientist
  • Chemist

Requirements for Entry

There is no experience or previous qualifications required for enrolment on this course. It is available to all students, of all academic backgrounds.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
