I'm looking at university courses as I don't know what course I want to study at university yet...
I'm interested in sciences and maybe also related to medicine. I'm currently doing biology and chemistry. I definitely want to do something with biology, although chemistry can be involved as well.
I thought maybe I'd do Biochemistry, Biomedical Science or Pharmacology. So I was wondering what course is better for which careers and which course is seen as better by employers.
Also I appreciate any other course suggestions
Biochemistry, Biomedical Science, Pharmacology Watch

There isn't much of a difference in terms of what is 'better'. You'll need to look at the course content and see what is involved in each.
Biochemistry is very molecular based, so learning cellular mechanisms.
Biomed - is good as it covers pretty much everything, and you can choose what you want to do (provided it's a non-accredited degree). So anything ranging from physiology, genetics etc. including biochemistry and pharmacology. Otherwise, you can just choose to do one of these areas as your degree and specialise in that.
Pharmacology is more drugs based, fair bit of neuroscience, learning a lot about different neurotransmitters and receptors etc.Last edited by Waterstorm; 10-04-2013 at 01:03.
