Which course would offer me better job opportunities,astrophysics or on the other hand psychology or biology with psychology?
in italy for example it’s not easy to find a job for people who graduated in biology.
An admissions tutor of the queen mary university said “I would think Biology with Psychology offers more job opportunities as it spans both science and humanities and has more transferable skills (e.g. Statistics, report writing) than astrophysics”,on the other hand I met a guy in a hostel who said he thought astrophysics offers you good job opportunities as he had a friend who was studyng astrophysics,and this friend of his had already found a job in a bank and he was earning 2000£ a month, I also contacted ukeudexpert and they told me nevertheless they thought astrophysics is more oriented towards the research field,you can also find a job in the fields of aviation,defence,robotics,and in banks as in banks they need people with mathematical knowledge.
So which one would open more doors in the job market and would make me earn more money?
thank you very much

In general Astrophysics. If you want to work for the banks it is also excellent. Be warned though it is the hardest option there. I found my Astrophysics degree harder than achieveing a top 10% finish as a barrister at the Inns of Court.
On a side note I can also talk for a fair while about time paradoxes, the beauty of 0 and infinity, the fate of the universe, etc etc. Great pub degree

when you say "it is the hardest option there",what do you mean exactly?..it is hard because you have to study many hours more than the other courses..or because,it's not that it took you many hours to study it,but that you found maths and physics hard to understand?
also,since you graduated in astrophysics,what do you do now?
