Entering Direct Employment with a BSc in Physiology
Many Physiology graduates find direct employment in either pharmaceutical or medical-related professions and utilise the scientific knowledge/skills that they learned during the degree programme. A number of our graduates are working for Irish-based biotechnological/pharmaceutical companies such as Schering Plough, Wyeth and Pfizer. Others have gained employment as sales representatives for companies that supply pharmaceuticals to the medical profession and life sciences reagents/equipment to research and teaching laboratories.
Many students also capitalize on other skills gained during the course of a science degree such as organisational abilities, critical thinking, analytical abilities, and go on to find employment in marketing, publishing, the financial sector or as a patent lawyer.
