I have not yet embarked in undergraduate study at university yet as I am currently in Sixth Form. I plan on studying Biomedical Science.
After a bachelors, can you go straight into doing a Masters degree, or is it better to get a job (i.e a lab assistant) to earn some money first or does it not really matter?
I think I'd like to do the MSc in something like Cancer Research.
The same goes for PhD. Do you get paid a salary during PhD research or is it just money to go towards the tuition fees?
I've heard UK citizens get about £15k per year but that's not a lot compared to other graduate science salaries. Or, are PhDs part-time courses and then they do part-time work as a scientist as well, for example?
To be honest, I would like to just work in a (well established) university, or a hospital lab perhaps, doing research and would like to get a PhD.
Many thanks in advance.
Do you get paid during PhD Research? (And some other questions)
