Pathway to masters
A postgraduate diploma is the stepping stone to a research-based degree such as a masters or PhD
What is it Like?
Massey University’s Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Biochemistry) gives you the opportunity to join the pathway to in-depth research at a masters level. The programme consists of 90 credits of taught programmes and 30 credits of research.
The programme gives you the opportunity to show your analytical thinking and high-level research capability. If you complete the programme at a satisfactory level you may be able to proceed to the Masters of Science (Biochemistry). If so, credits you have gained through this qualification may be credited to the masters programme.
It is an intensive, intellectually-challenging programme where time management is critical and where you can expect to acquire many transferable skills, sought after by employers.
Biochemistry focuses on the structure and function of proteins, the intricacies of cellular metabolism and communication and information transfer from nucleic acids to improve our knowledge and understanding of biomedical science, biotechnology and biological chemistry.
World-leading facilities and equipment
Massey University is well supported with specialist equipment to carry out biochemistry research. In addition to a dedicated tissue culture facility, real-time PCR instruments, specialised fluorescence microscopes and plate readers, the Manawatu Microscopy Center is housed within the Institute. Confocal, and scanning, transmission and epifluorescence microscopy services and expertise are therefore on site.
Why postgraduate study?
Postgraduate study is hard work but hugely rewarding and empowering. This qualification will push you to produce your best creative, strategic and theoretical ideas. The workload replicates the high-pressure environment of senior workplace roles. Our experts are there to guide but if you have come from undergraduate study, you will find that postgraduate study demands more in-depth and independent study.
International trends are for employers to reward postgraduate study well, especially in larger enterprises. The skills you learn are increasingly recognised as setting you apart from other potential employees. International chemistry and engineering publications have run surveys showing clearly that the more postgraduate study you complete, the higher your salary in the workforce.
