    I am looking at the Biology and History & Philosophy of Science degree offered at the university of Leeds. I wondered if this joint honours degree would still mean I could go into a career in biology (maybe research or something similar) or would it limit my employability in the biological field?

    It would potentially limit chances of research, a friend was torn between an MBiol and a joint honours doing maths & biology. She contacted biology schools around the UK and asked if she could transfer to a masters after the joint degree and most said no due to a lack of biology modules.

    Do check though, the degree you want to do may contain more biology than the maths/biology degree at Leeds.
