    Hi. I am looking for advice only. I graduated back in 2011, from the University of York with a 2:2 MChem degree. Since then I have become a science teacher. In recent years I have considered going back to University and study/research in the field of environmental sciences. First, I am wondering if it is even possible with my grade? Second, even if I went and got a second masters degree would that help? Or would my initial degree result prevent me going on to research at PhD level?

    You used to be able to get funding for a PhD if you had a Masters if your first degree was below a 2:1 but I have no idea if that is still the case, its all down to money.
