Biomedical sciences or environmental sciencesWatch
It depends on where you are looking for jobs? Obviously they can lead to different career paths, and if you are looking to do Masters and PhDs it will also be very different. However if you are looking to do a non-degree related job then either would be fine.
While you're still here- what's better BIOMEDICAL or biological sciences???
In that case environmental science? Biomedical science graduates tends to work in the healthcare industry (if you want to work in a related occupation) - now If you land a big career in a pharmaceutical company and end up being their CEO then good for you. Obviously again, with either degree you can choose to do something completely unrelated and still excel!
I don't see why not. Bear in mind however if you are applying to do something competitive and lucrative (e.g. oil companies) and they have 2 applicants - one with a biomedical science degree, and one with environmental science degree - who would you choose?
Could you ever earn as much money as people who do env sciences with biomed IN YOUR OWN FIELD- so in healthcare.
You may want to consider a more general Biology or Biological Sciences course which may allow you more flexibility to specialise towards one or the other side in the course of it.
Also money is not the be all and end all - far from it.
If you say ever then yes - if you get to the top of the food chain in a pharmaceutical company? But for the average graduate environment sciences earn slightly more than biological sciences (not biomedical) - see https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...raduates-earn/
But I also had geography at a level and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it.
So I guess I'm interested wether I could somehow incorporate both- perhaps with biological sciences..? Also I am an international student so I would have to find scholarships for masters and phds,so I have to be very careful in making my decision. That's why I'm focusing it mostly on money. I would most likely love to do biomedicine, but every single person that I've heard of doing biomedical sciences has trouble finding employment... I am really torn.
I do agree with your last statement - it is hard to find employment with BMS degrees. Would you be interested to work in the NHS BMS training scheme? The pay will be about £20k / year I think (not too sure). Obviously I am biased and would say that biomedical sciences is interesting, but geography and environmental sciences is interesting to me too (not as a career-interesting)! Do what your heart tells you to - money is important but you'll find a way to pay
