I'm currently a 3rd (final) year biomedical sciences undergraduate and am trying to find a career path outside my field of study-mainly because of a diminishing interest-i still find it interesting but i don't really have a "passion" for it. This is also why i'm not thinking about a masters/phd or postgraduate medicine-the last thing i want is to change my mind after paying years of tuition fees. My parents suggested accounting a while ago which made me consider finance in general. But have no idea where to start-knowing what conversion education is required, acquiring relevant work experience, and what i can realistically do and can't do compared to a finance graduate. How should i go about researching a career in this field?

Finance and accounting are different subjects (although finance will include an element of accounting).

Both subjects can open doors different careers and you are not restricted to one, although you can expect accountants typically go into /accounts/audit/bookkeeping where as finance people work in insurance/trading/asset management/investment etc.
