biomedical sciences or microbiology?Watch
Hi everyone! So i'm just a bit curious as to what the difference is between the two (I have done research but id preferably like some personal input). I'm looking towards maybe going into a vaccine researcher or like a more research based as well as hands on approach career and just wanted to know which would be better to pick. Thanks
Worth mentioning that university choice is important if you want to study microbiology. I did my medical sciences degree at Exeter for example, where they had no people who studied virology and barely any who studied fungi, meaning we didn't get taught about viruses and barely anything about fungi. Others presumably won't have this issue.
Also worth remembering that Biomedical science also covers microbiology to a decent amount of detail. So it's a bit like the best of both worlds. Many people do BSc Biomed and then MSc microbiology too so you always have that option.
