Career prospects with a nutrition degree compared to biology/biomedical sciences?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I can't find a huge amount of relevant information on the internet, but does anyone know about the differences in what you can do with any of the above degrees? They are all rather similar in terms of content, especially the first year, but beyond that I was wondering if anyone knew what sort of thing I could do? Would one be better than the others in terms of career prospects afterwards?


    Your future career goals will determine how good each of those courses are in terms of your career prospects - e.g. if you want to be a nutritionist, studying nutrition is key. However, if you wanted to keep your options a little more open, having a degree on biomedical sciences/biology will cover a wider variety of topics and most likely give you more choice to specialise a little later down the line.

    Unfortunately, we don't have an article on degrees in nutrition specifically, but your career prospects when studying nutrition will be relatively comparative to those studying sports science - we also have some information on careers that can follow a degree in biology here.

    Hope that helps!
