I'm a mature student(25) in second year undenominated science at NUI Galway. I'm doing chemistry, microbiology and botany. I hope to do chemistry and microbiology for 3rd year and major in chemistry for my final year. I don't think I would stay on to do a PhD if I was offered one as I'd be in my 30's by the time I'd get work etc.
I just want to get some opinions about a chemistry degree, is it any good? Originaly I wanted to do Pharmacology but could'nt due to subjects I chose and I was told chemistry is a way of getting into that area, that with a chemistry degree you could get into drug reasearch etc. I'm finding the chemistry very difficult and just want to know if I was to slug it out and maybe get a 2/1 what kind of work is out there, are the prospects good and can one make good money with a chem degree.
