    Up to you and your interests! If you are especially interested in imaging go for radiography. If it's working with pregnant women go for midwifery and if you have a broader interest in healthcare go for adult nursing. Pick something you could really see yourself doing well at because you need a good result in order to get into an MSc programme.

    Or just go straight for a medical ultrasound primary qualification? I personally would want the security of a degree with broad prospects like the other three would give though. I have a niche degree, it's less than ideal at times.

    I would go for radiography because it'll be easier for in the long run to become a sonographer. They teach you about ultrasounds from the first year but mostly in third and it's the better and easier pathway to sonography. Hope that helps

    Radiography will be the most relevant pathway. Midwifery is pretty much as competitive as courses come. Steer clear of nursing.
