I'm taking Maths, Physics and English lit&lang at a level and am pretty sure i would like to do a science based degree. Obviously i cant do medicine since i didn't take either chemistry or biology. Is Medical Physics a good option? Or maybe Biophysics? I would like to work in a hospital but not sure the best route or degrees to get and haven't heard of anyone taking either of those courses.

Hi lclarke23,

Are you interested in using science to work with people (in a healthcare role) , or using science to work in, for example, a lab (as a "scientist")? I think having a think about this should help you focus your search a little more. Of course there are lots of pathways and cross-over careers, so its not always as clear cut as people vs things.

However, if you like physics and maths, and do want to work with people, two suggestions for courses that we offer would be Diagnostic Radiography or Prosthetics and Orthotics.

Have you taken the careers quiz on the NHS website? They also have this Healthcare Science brochure which looks like a good read as well.

Good luck with your research and I'm happy to answer any further queries you might have!
