    Hi

    I'm sorting out my options on UCAS and I'm wondering if doing biochemistry with a year in industry- 4 years (earning a BSc) and then doing a masters is worth it? Or just doing the standard BSc in biochem- 3 years- and then going onto a masters? Some unis don't offer the year in industry :/

    Guess it depends what you want at the end of the day and what you want to do.

    A person I know what to work in a lab so she took the 4 yr route and after finishing the course she managed to secure down a job. Not saying it happens 100% of the time, but it does happen

    Research experience is key if you want to go into science In some cases it may even be more important than the extra qualification.
