I was admitted to pursue a Bachelor of Science (in Biology, Microbiology and Biotechnology or Environmental Conservation and Natural Resource Management) but I would like to pursue Biochemistry. Is it possible?

Yes it is. If one intends to be admitted into Biochemistry after their first year of study, he/she will be required to select units from Chemistry Department and other units
from the School of Biological Sciences that is, Botany/Zoology units and School of Mathematics. This is a competitive programme which admits only the best twenty to thirty (20 - 30) first year students who have fulfilled the requirements. Students admitted to this programme will in addition to the one year taken at the School of Biological Sciences, take four (4) years. Thus, in total the students take a total of five (5) years.
The student must therefore notify their sponsor because of the extra 1 year which they will be required to pay for themselves.
