    At the moment I am considering sticking to doing Dietetics. However, if by any means I change my choice, which one out of Biochemistry and Biomedical should I choose?

    The aspect why I never took these courses seriously was due to the job prospects. There's hardly any jobs out there which these courses could lead to apart from lab based or do Graduate entry medicine.

    Impossible to say which would be better for you as you have given us basically no information as to what you are looking for in a degree or career.


    Also it's worth noting labs and GEM are not the only prospects for graduates in those fields, there are many opportunities outside of labs for those graduates. I think you should do some proper research before you decide anything.

    Career prospects for biomedical applicants aren't the best, and the jobs are fairly boring.

    With Biochemistry you can at least dabble in a number of different fields and interact with Chemistry to help understand what Biologists only memorise.

    Typical lab work. You'll be crouched over a petri dish or microscope.

    Plus most Biomedical Scientists are people looking to get onto graduate entry medicine. Not so much Biochemistry.
