Which degree for a career in research? Watch
I'm considering working as a research chemist, biochemist or pharmacologistin the future and was wondering which degrees would be the most suitable to get into this type of career.
Some universities offer an undergraduate MSci in these courses (4 years), whereas others only offer a BSc for undergraduates. I've read that an MSc is highly desirable for research, but what about a PhD? Do you need both a PhD and an MSc for optimum chances? Is a BSc followed by a PhD a good combination?
I'm just a little confused, so if you have any answers, that would be great!
Thank you : )
