Hey I'm in my second year of Biological Sciences at Liverpool and loving it! I want to go into veterinary parasitology and Liverpool has great postgraduate opportunities for that but for more in terms of PhDs, so you picked a good firm :teehee:. Is this parasitology course a masters? If so, would you not be happy with moving to a different place after your undergraduate?

Pick the university you would be happiest at

If you're serious about a career in the field you should be more worried about whether you're getting the best possible education than what the area is like. Pick courses that will let you explore related areas of the field and take specialist modules in parasitology. Also look out for unis which offer undergrad projects in the subject. It's better to move unis between undergrad and postgrad so don't rule out places that don't offer a postgrad course.

Go where you'll be happier. The only thing with specialised courses is that your interests may change because you've never actually studied the subject before and may not necessarily have a realistic idea of what it's like yet so it's always better to do something more general with the option to do specialised modules.
