I still don't know what to study at uni and my personal statement first draft is due on tuesday.
I currently study biology chemistry and psychology

I wanted to do pharmacy after I vitisted portsmouth uni open day but I have read so much online about how bad it is, does anyone have any advice about this?

My other options I am thinking about is midwifery, however I have no work experience to talk about for this. I have volunteered in a care home but I don't know if that is good enough plus midwifery is very competitive.
I am also scared for the interviews I think I would mess them up, if I got one.

My other options are biochemistry which I was thinking of doing and then doing a masters in forensics as that really interests me. However, its very hard to get a job in forensics.

I was also considering biomedicine, anatomy, chemistry and biology. But I really don't know what to do anymore. And I don't particularly want a job in a lab doing research.

I also really want to go to portsmouth uni as its fairly cheap to live there and I won't get much of a maintenance loan and my parents don't have much to help me.

Please if anyone has any advice for helping me choose I would appreciate it a lot.
Thank you

Many people end up doing something totally different as to what they study in uni. If you want to go to Portsmouth, go!

If you know 100% thats where you wish to go then look at the uni website and work your way through all the possible courses ticking off the ones you arent interested in until you narrow it down.

Alternatively look at all possible careers and go back to pick the appropriate course.
