    I have two offers for two different degrees and need help choosing!!!
    I want to work in the pharmaceutical industry and have a background in medical sciences.

    My first MSc offer is for Data Science for Research in Health and Biomedicine at University College London; this degree focuses on big data and statistics as well as health informatics, bioinformatics, and using computer programming to analyse research data. I have been told that health / bioinformatics is the future of research?https://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-st...iomedicine-msc

    The second Option is Pharmaceutical Medicine Drug Development Science at Kings College London; this degree focuses on clinical trials and the stages from preclinical to clinical studies and drug approval onto the market. http://www.kcl.ac.uk/prospectus/grad...header_search/

    any advice would be much appreciated!!!

    They're vastly different degrees which focus on vastly different things so go with what you're interested in. Both are employable in different parts of the pharma industry.
