    So I want to study medicine, but I want to go down the Postgrad route as the subjects i take aren't sufficient for entry to medicine. Would biomedicine or psychology be better?
    With psychology, I would take a year out after graduating and train to be a clinical psychologist, so i would have a years' clinical experience prior to applying to medicine.
    Biomedicine however, covers more of the topics covered in medicine.

    Having looked at both courses i feel i would enjoy both equally, so that isn't a factor

    Have you tried foundation courses for people who haven't got the required subjects? Post grad isn't the best idea if you definitely want to do med

    *Graduate entry, not postgraduate.

    Doesn't becoming a clinical psychologist involve doing a PhD? I'm pretty sure it's a very competitive career and the training pathway takes longer than a year to complete.

    You could get into graduate entry medicine with either degree but biomedical sciences is a life sciences degree and would leave more doors open to you.
