    Despite being a Computer Science graduate with a couple of years of work experience under my belt, I find myself reading more about pharmacology and neurology in my spare time than IT related topics, and being out of work at the moment I don't feel like I'm going anywhere fast. I have seriously considered going back to uni to study pharmacology as I seem to have more of a passion for that than for IT, but I don't know what sort of career prospects there are in the field, I know I don't want to be a pharmacist just dispensing medication to customers with all the red tape and liability that entails as that would drive me to distraction, but I could see myself doing something like research.

    I would really just appreciate some realistic advice on what sort of career prospects there would be for a student with a 2:1 pharmacology degree from a decent university, and what sort of entry requirements there generally are for mature students (I'm 27).

    I posted in this forum because there wasn't really one for pharmacology, maybe the life sciences section would be better? Idk. Thanks anyway.
