    I'm wondering which is better. I know i'm interested in Neuroscience, but would it be better for me to keep it more general in my degree before specialising in Neuroscience or am i wasting my time?

    Either/or really, you won't lose out through either route. With a Neuroscience BSc you'll obviously be more specialised, but at the same time Biomed is a good way of hedging your bets by experiencing a wider variety of fields. They'll both lead to the same endpoint anyway, just different ways of going about it. MScs are quite expensive though, so if you're dead set on neuroscience then it's probably best to go for that as the slightly cheaper option.

    Depends on your faith in your selection of neuroscience over other fields of biology.

    In a way, its good to specialise, but on the otherhand, you may find out that cardiology interests you more, for example.

    Overall, it would be better to do a neurosci BSc if you end up applying for a neurosci MSc, but you will obviously experience more areas doing a biomed. Keep in mind biomedicine is also more clinical than pure neuroscience.

    Thank you! Think I'll opt for a straight neuroscience BSc, a lot more relevant and cheaper!

    You'll do a lot of modules in common with biomed in the first couple of years on a neuro degree (and vice versa) anyway - at least at my uni. Check out course structure and such, but don't worry about over-specialising necessarily just because of the course title
