    Hi,

    Currently I am a second year studying to get my BSc in Chemistry. I have a huge interest in chemistry but in terms of my career I've discovered that I am really interested in psychology or neuroscience. I have a massive interest in not only the brain and how it functions but also the mind and how it works. Things like mental health and drug addiction interest me a lot and I would love to be able to help people.

    Im not entirely sure what I would like to do but I'm hoping there is something out there that could perhaps wrap my interests into one. I've been thinking about perhaps psychiatry but am unsure what the route would be after I've gained my BSc in chemistry... would i have to then go to med school for 5 years?

    Thanks in advance!
