    Hi everyone.. first post.

    I have been looking at Neuroscience or Genetics at UCL or King's as courses I am interested in applying for..

    I know that there is an option to take first year Biomedical Science and switch in the second year to various courses, these ones included.

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience doing this?

    If it was an advised route to take?

    If it was easier or harder to get on these competitive courses going via Biomedial Sciences or not?

    Thanks

    What sort of career do you want with regards to neuroscience and genetics?

    If you are looking to do research, you may be better doing a biomedical degree, followed by masters in the area you want to work within, plus experience in that area, and then a PhD.

    In a BMS degree you'll learn all the lab techniques that go hand in hand with genetics and some neuroscience to an extent, e.g. Immunoassay, ELISA, PCR, electrophroesis. Plus learning all the biochemical pathways, anatomy, physiology, molecular cell biology and mroe that will aid in that sort of career.

    Please take my advice with caution though, as I have never even looked at a neuroscience or genetics prospectus!!

    (I may be biased here because i'm a second year BMS!)

    Im looking at doing the masters in Drug discovery and biomedical science at UCL when I graduate (thats if I cant get a job in an NHS lab between graduating and masters intake!)
