Morning theoneandonlyyo,

Are you currently completing your degree? Or have you already finished? Either way, you have a few options but there is actually a lot you can do with an undergrad science degree. I would recommend looking at https://www.prospects.ac.uk/ as the site is very informative! Here are a few example options based on what I've read on the site:

The first option is to take some time to get work experience if you don't already have some. Ask around/look at your university job site and see what is available. You could also look here http://www.bna.org.uk/jobs/ for more specific jobs.

1. You could be a Neuroscientist. This is a (most often) lab-based and highly competitive job. You'll have a good chance of getting a job with a neuroscience degree but you may want to consider a Masters or PhD to make your application more competitive and further develop the skills needed for the job.

2. You could be a pharmacologist. Again lab-based and competitive. There are graduate training schemes available in industry with companies. See https://www.bps.ac.uk/careers-development for how to get into this line of work

Career progression is positive in this sector as well as new technologies make way for new developments, it all depends on where in the sector you decide to work (i.e. industry, education, etc.).

Hope this helps!

Good luck and best wishes,

Chelsea

Hi theoneandonlyyo

It is great you are thinking about career prospects.

There are LOADS of opportunities for careers if you have a neuroscience degree - you are definitely not limited. If you are interested in staying directly within science you could find yourself in one of these jobs:
- academia/teaching
- research (for larger pharma companies or charities)
- in the NHS as a Clinical Scientist (https://nshcs.hee.nhs.uk/healthcare-...cal-scientist/)
- working in clinical trials

Slightly further afield which will still utilize your scientific knowledge but not so much are;
- pharmaceutical industry (e.g. marketing, sales, clinical trials, pharmacovigilance etc)
- science communicator for charities or scientific writer
- consultant for a life science business

You could even find yourself in jobs which are not related directly to science due to the numerous transferable skills you would have acquired:
- finance
- recruitment
- business

What sort of job peaks your interest?
