    Got a job for now, something that seems interesting. Will be working as a TA, I will have okay pay considering I am not paying transport or rent costs.To add to it so far I am very excited to be working there.

    I have very limited working experience outside of my education so I am using this year as a transition. I don't want to stagnate I have a masters degree in a Biology and want to keep ambitious despite being realistic.

    I didn't apply to many graduate schemes until after my exams due to just not having the time to focus on them properly. I didn't put my self in a position to get any because of this. Despite having a decent degree I felt my lack of experience in real vocation made it unlikely I would get a suitable job any time soon.

    If I enjoy the school work I would look into teaching one way or another, but also apply for graduate schemes.

    So I wanted to ask when do the 2017 entry graduate schemes open?

    Is my plan good/Did I make the right choice?

    Will experience as a TA look good for getting into grad scheme/QTS routes?

    What career routes can I look into with a biology degree, I can barely find any research roles for new graduates/ could I apply for business end stuff?

    Each graduate scheme has its own entry start dates, you need to look at the websites of the organisations you are interested in.
