Life Sciences

Life Sciences is often called “the most important scientific area of XXI century”. If XX century was dominated by physics, our lives would be determined by extraordinary innovations coming from life sciences and medicine. That is why it may be a perfect time to choose a degree in Medicine or Biology.

Moreover, in many countries in the world medical career is extremely prestigious and profitable. However, it obviously makes admission process more difficult for prospective students. It should also be noted that degree in Medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry are among the most expensive in the world. They are typically 50%-90% more expensive comparing other programs provided by university. The reason for that is not only the popularity of these degrees, but also the necessity to provide laboratory equipment for medical studies. In order to get into medical school, prospective students have to demonstrate exceptionable academic abilities in Biology and Chemistry, as well as motivation to work in the this field. Some working experience in medicine (e.g. assistant in public health center) would be a valuable part of your CV.

The other option for those who want to pursue a career in medicine is Public Health degree, which is particularly popular in the United States. It’s the best choice for those who want to work in public sector, to build and manage an efficient system of public health and to make an impact in your own country. Research career is also available: after PhD degree students may start to work at the university or to choose a research department of private pharmaceutical company.
