    Hi,

    I am on my final placement for an MSc Radiotherapy course. I have recently been having doubts about the career to a point where I am physically anxious all the time.

    I really want to drop out because I feel like I cannot transfer my knowledge to anything else even if I do complete the degree.

    I have a first degree in Biomedical Sciences so this is my second career choice.

    I really don't know what to do! I am turning 27 this year and I feel like I am running out of time to start a career!!!

    Can anyway suggest other ways of using my qualifications or any advice on what it is actually like being a qualified radiographer??

    Hi! I qualified in 2015 so i've been working for about 18 months now, it's much better once you're actually working and trusted to do the job and also being paid! I had a bit of a wobble in 2nd year but glad i stuck with it and i honestly love my job now. You're so close to finishing i think you should carry on and see how you get once you're qualified. Is it a specific aspect you're not enjoying?

    You're definitely not too old for a new career btw. I qualified at 28 and I know people in their 40s + qualifying for health careers
