Hey guys,

So I've received an offer to study biochemistry. Initially, I thought this is what I wanted to do - I had quite a strong interest in medicine but decided I'd prefer to go down the research route, so biochem seemed perfect. I am interested in both biology and chemistry so it seemed rational to pick this subject. However, I am now kind of having second thoughts. I've noticed that I'm not as interested in medical research/human biology as I was once before.

I've always loved physical geography and it is definitely my strongest subject, during both GCSE and A-Level. I thought about a geography degree during secondary school but after some research decided against it as it wasn't really sciencey enough for me. I also dismissed geology too without doing much research, as I believed it wouldn't be a very strong degree to have, so I focused more on the biology/chemistry route. After recently researching geology more deeply I've found that it actually looks very interesting, much like physical geography but much more scientific and much more in-depth.

It's such a tough decision to make because both degrees look interesting, I just cannot decide which one would be best for me. I'd love to hear from some people who are studying/have studied geology or biochem, how you're finding the course and what kind of job prospects are ect

Thanks!

There are some 'natural science' courses where you can do two or more science subjects. From what I remember though, you might have trouble finding one with biochem + geology. For instance, Leeds has a natural sc course with a biochem pathway but lacks geology (instead has an environmental science pathway). Other ones that I remember seeing with Earth sciences lacked biochem specifically (albeit having biology and chemistry, etc).
