Hi, I am currently interested in genetics and antibiotics. I am holding an undergraduate biomedical genetics. I am looking forward to doing a postgrad. Which course is recommended if I want to study about resistance and can I apply with my genetics degree?

Hi, I want to know what is the job range for the degrees. Will I be able to work to make vaccines or create antibiotics with genetics degree? Or would I have to pursue another degree such as biochemical engineering?

Job range - the two main avenues you can go down are academic (scientific research) and industry (working for big pharmaceutical and/or biotechnology companies).

honestly once you’ve got your degree (with a decent classification from a decent uni), the scientific world is your oyster. However, you’re unlikely to see much job progression with only an undergraduate degree, especially in academia you’ll need a PhD.

If creating antibiotics/drugs is what you want to do, why not consider pharmacology? In my 4 years of University-level genetics, I’ve only had a handful of lectures on drugs, their synthesis and usage.

I am not entirely dedicated to making drugs just some aspects of drugs, biotech and genetics. What are the jobs likely to be for genetics degree? I am planning to do a pg degree too. What are the branches of genetics or degrees related to that that has job progression? Can I do a bio engineering following the genetics degree? Would it be useful for genetics area? Or should I do a pg specifically in the area of genetics ex molecular genetics? Are genetics jobs likely to grow in the future?
