I have been offered a place for foundation engineering at Bradford uni which I can progress onto medical engineering, a place at UCLAN for foundation pharmacology/physiology which I can progress onto this course or medical sciences and offered a place at Salford uni for foundation biology which I can do biomed or something.

I need help as to which one I should go for, which has the best chance of a good graduate entry job?

My interests are more towards medical sciences because I wanted to do medicine but it's not worth the risk for that so are there any jobs for medical science?

Medical engineering seems interesteing but are there jobs in the uk for it? And Salford I chose due to it being local, and they rejecting me for biochemistry which was my original choice. I seriously need help and anyone who's studied these courses advice would be much appreciated. Also, the thing with the foundation course at Uclan is that I can change my mind to just pharmacology/physiology if there are more jobs because I enjoy physiology.

Hello - just to answer some of your Medical Engineering - Foundation questions:

Job prospects for qualified medical engineers in the UK are excellent with salaries are above average - top engineers are paid the same as hospital consultants!

There are opportunities in a wide variety of roles. Many graduates are employed in commercial and manufacturing organizations designing and developing medical devices; while others are employed by hospitals where they work with clinicians to provide care for patients. Others may be employed in research and development facilities, pioneering the technologies which today might seem unrealistic, but tomorrow may be common-place. However, no matter the specific nature of the role, one factor remains consistent; namely, that medical engineering is interesting, multi-disciplinary and fast moving.

Studying Foundation Engineering means that you also have a whole year to decide which of the many engineering disciplines appeals to you the most.

If you haven't already decided and have more questions then let us know.
