Interested in a biology degree

What are some jobs I can do which isn't like biomedical science
Are you asking about the degree or about careers? It's important to understand the two are not necessarily related. Most graduates go on to work in careers unrelated to what they studied at uni.

The degree

Well there's certainly many other options. Most called "biological sciences" may fit the bill, also things like ecology/conservation, zoology, marine biology, plant sciences/botany, etc. In the biomolecular side of things but not biomedical sciences there's biochemistry/molecular biology, cell/developmental biology, genetics, microbiology, virology, etc.

Depending on specific interests you may also be interested in some neuroscience, (physical/biological/evolutionary) anthropology, or (palaeolithic) archaeology courses. Also there are a few human sciences degrees about still which tend to have a broader approach than biomedical sciences.

There's also pharmacology, anatomy/anatomical sciences, and physiology/physiological sciences, but if you're not interested in biomedical sciences those may be less appealing as there's varying degrees of overlap (more in the physiology side than the anatomy stuff though).
