    Hello again,
    I want to study chemistry for 3years at a University.How are my chances for a job afterwards?
    I do not plan to make a Master in it.
    I heard that jobs are pretty hard to get with only a B.sc degree is that true ?
    I hope somebody can speak out of experience.
    Best regards,
    Kenny

    Some unis will have a masters course where the fourth year is a year in industry - have you considered that? You would then graduate with a masters as well as 12 months' experience.

    In any case, getting relevant experience will be a key part in determining how hard it is to find employment after graduation.

    You will be able to go for any grad jobs that require any degree (finance, teaching, patent law, law, HR stuff, consulting etc). If you learn a skill outside of your degree such as programming you will be able to become a software dev)

    There are some jobs in chemistry that require just a bsc but any research level jobs will require a phd.

    You can get a job with a chemistry bsc but chances are in wont be related to chemistry
