    Hey all, I'm due to start a Master's in Neuroscience this September at a great uni. (Previous degree: Biomedical Science 2.1).

    I'm worried it'll be a waste... I'd like to go into research but probably in industry rather than academia (probably due to the poor pay I hear a lot about).

    After spending a year off trying to get a good placement/lab job I've had no experience.

    Can someone please help me understand my prospects with a Master's in Neuroscience and what my possible options might be? Is neuroscience the wrong subject to go into if you want to work in bigpharma research/industry?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you
