I'm currently doing a biomedical science degree at university and I have just completed my first year and going to my second year in September 2019. I thought that I would enjoy biomedical science and maybe even do a masters in something related however I just found myself to no favour laboratory work and I couldn't imagine working in a laboratory in the future with limited patient contact. I was thinking about going to postgraduate degree and doing physician associate but from online research I see that it is a fairly new job in the UK and compared to America I am not sure how in demand this job role will be when I graduate. I'm really confused, is anyone going through the same??

The job is probably 5 years old now. There is demand for it. You don't need any other postgraduate qualification, just your undergraduate degree.

How are you funding your course? I am very confused by the government funding and bursaries. Is the £10,000 student loan from Student finance only for the first year of study or as it is a 2 year masters can you receive the loan twice to cover each year, also can you receive the £5,000 NHS bursary along with the SFE loan amount?

I am self-funding and have been saving for 4 years to pay for the course. As i am doing a PGDip in PA studies, i am not entitled to any loan from SFE as that is for people completing the masters course, however I will get the 5K bursary. The masters loan is for the 2 years, so the 10K is split over the two years and yes you will receive the 5K and the loan.

Are there any benefits/drawbacks to doing PGDip over masters?
