    Hey, so ive just started year 13 and have had to start reading about universities. Currently i'd like to study Biochemistry at Aberystwyth. I thought you studied at uni and then went to get a job but from further reading i realise its not that simple. I'd like to go into research and have read that id need to get a masters to do so. What opportunities would i have with just a bachelors? would i have to go to a different university to get my Masters? What do you need to get into a Masters course? How long is a masters, is it like a bachelors but just more in depth? Is there anything that i should know too to help my chances of getting a job in research? Also like to add that i'd like to do a sandwich course.
    Thanks

    If you want to stay in science you need a masters if not a PhD. With a bachelor's degree you may be able to get a research tech post but those are also difficult to come by now with just a BSc and you won't have much if any career progression. You don't have to go elsewhere for a masters but it is advisable. Entry requirements and info about types of masters can be found online. A sandwich year and any other research experience is vital for getting a job in research.
