Science, dental and pharmacy are all underpinned by three main subjects (biology, chemistry and physics) but the career opportunities that evolve out of studying them are huge and may be quite surprising.
Whether you’re looking to start a health-related career like nursing, radiography or occupational therapy, or a non-health related career like forensics, biomedical science and criminology, studying science is the perfect starting place. It has great progression opportunities to go to university and study a whole range of courses.
Going down a slightly different route, you could choose to study dental technology which is an aspect of dental science. Dental technology is involved in designing, fabricating and repairing custom made dental appliances. These include dentures, crowns, bridges and dental braces.
