Transferring from medicine to neuroscienceWatch
I’ve been wanting to transfer courses from medicine to something else throughout first year. I came to the realisation that I do not want to be a doctor and I don’t have enough motivation/passion to finish the degree and then work the long and stressful hours that I would in a hospital. However, now I am stuck on what to transfer to. Right now I’m torn between maths and neuroscience. I did maths and further maths at a level and I really enjoyed it so I feel like I would enjoy studying maths at university level, the only problem is that now that I’ve taken a year break from it I’ve forgotten basically all of my maths knowledge so I’m worried that I would struggle if I were to transfer to the degree now. I’m also considering neuroscience as my twin studies it and I’ve looked through her lecture notes and uni material and the content seems really interesting. However, I’m worried that transferring to neuroscience would be a mistake as often it’s the other way around where people transfer from degrees like neuroscience to medicine. I’m also worried that it may have limited job prospects aside from research. Does anyone have any advice?
Maths - well i guess it depends on the uni as to how strict they'd be about that. I did maths and f.maths but I know I wouldn't have been good enough to do maths at my uni! Clearly, if you are let in you'd have to start at the beginning of first year.
Basically: talk to the uni ASAP as time is critical now.
