    I have offers to study foundation courses leading to various degrees at Liverpool, Durham and Nottingham but before I chose which uni, and eventually which course, I need some information on which courses give better career prospects. At Liverpool I can progress to study Biochemistry, Microbiology, Genetics or Pharmacology. At Nottingham I can go on to study Biochemistry and Genetics (together) and I'm entertaining the Idea of Neuroscience if the careers are prosperous. Finally Durham are offering biomedical sciences or biological sciences. Every single one of these courses sounds awesome so I'm finding it impossible to chose however I know hardly anything about careers in these fields. People seem to just say ''research or industry". Don't get me wrong, Research and industry sounds great but it's rather vague. I'd like to know things like what kind of jobs I could go in to after each degree and how difficult it is to gain employment in these areas and of course, which one of these courses can offer me the best career prospects in terms of security and salary. For instance I've heard biochemists are in demand, I have no idea about the legitimacy of these claims.

    So any information about career opportunities with these degrees or any recommendations about which path to take would be very helpful.

    Thanks for reading!

    i would suggest biochemistry and genetics at Nottingham University which is good at career opportunities also..
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
