Hi,


There are quite good options after MSc Life Science depending on if you wish to go int he direction of academia or industry. You can opt for various jobs in Life Science Industries based on your core expertise (Pharma, Drug manufacturing, Production etc). On the other hand to be in academia, a PhD will be ideal in your field of interest. You can also opt to go for Medicince if you are interested too (Doctor).
