    Good afternoon. I'm a spanish student who would like to study in England (London if possible). I don't really know about studying there, so I would appreciate if you guys could help me.

    In school i like Chemistry and Biology, and I'm also a very good student (9.7 out of 10 Spanish grades). Even though I'm not very sure on what to study... And I have to apply in a few months.

    Here are my questions:

    -What's better, pharmacy, pharmacology, or psychology? (talking about if the degree is interesting and entertaining)

    -Which one leads to better career opportunities? How much money would you earn?

    -Which are the best unis to study these degrees? I've heard about Kings, Notthingham, UCL...

    -Also, I DONT want to work in a lab in the future. I want to study one of these, but i want to socialize while i work. Do you think thats possible? How?

    THANKS so much really

    Since you like Chemistry and Biology I would probably recommend Pharmacy and Pharmacology since Psychology is a separate subject on its own so only do it if you researched it/studied it before.

    Also you said that you don't want to work in a lab and would like to socialise so I would discourage pharmacology because most of them work in a lab work in a lab after graduating. Pharmacy would be your best bet although pharmacist have been getting salary cuts and I think there is a shortage in jobs so you'd have to consider it carefully.

    I couldn't tell you much about English unis because I live in Scotland but only 2 unis offer it here.

    Hope I helped.
    PS I have not studied any of these degrees so anyone feel free to correct me and take my advice lightly.
