    hello all I'm currently in my second year at university studying human biosciences, recently I realised that I didn't want to stay in the science field career wise (even though I love my degree).
    As a result I was looking into careers particularly in the Foreign and commonwealth office fast stream, and the Generalist stream of the civil service. Though they don't specify a degree for entry into these subjects, would having a science degree as opposed to a humanities degree hold me back in any way? Are any of you science graduates in the civil service who can give me some advice? I do read plenty of books on philosophy, and politics as it is, and like to think I have a good working knowledge of our system of government, foreign cultures etc.
    Any advice welcome! thanks

    Hello Chloe033, your Science degree won't hold you back, it is up to you to keep your knowledge up to date. Many people who complete their degrees end up in jobs that has nothing to do with what they were studying
