Where can a degree in neuroscience take me?

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

    I'm currently studying biology, chemistry and psychology at A Level and I also did maths at AS level. I've always wanted to have a career in an area surrounding the brain, so at first I was going to do a degree in psychology and then gain a masters in clinical psychology. However, I recently found out about a neuroscience degree and thought this would be more interesting.

    I'm just curious as to where it can lead and if it is more research based? Are there any other degrees that are "brain/body related"and may be worth looking into? Also, if I wanted a career with a high salary (preferably above £30k per year) what degrees may be of interest to me in this field? (I'm not looking to do a medicine degree).

    Thank you

    You can do pretty much anything that uses your transferable skills but if you want a science career you will need to do a masters if not a PhD. Have a look at jobs to get an idea of requirements and salaries but don't go into science for the money.
