    I have applied to universities for bioveterinary sciences and even received offers, but i'm starting to really think about what careers there really are because people will usually mention 'lab based', 'research' or 'alongside vets' but what does that mean, i'm looking for specifics and I don't think I have the answer i'm looking for yet.

    Also, I know that it is a different course but would anyone happen to know the main differences in career opportunities between bioveterinary and biomedical sciences? Other than the obvious fact that is one is more kind of focused on animals and the other on humans.

    Sorry if i'm confusing anybody.

    Biovet stuff will be more animal-y and biomed will be more human. Apart from that they are basic science academic degrees. If you want to work in research you will have to do postgrad study and specialise anyway so at this point pick the one you are more interested in.
