Courses How could I gain a career in biophysics?

  1. Sep 12, 2016 #1
    Hi, I am currently in the last year of sixth form and looking to go to university. However, I am unsure of which course to take since I equally enjoy learning about biology and physics. Biophysics, seems like it would be the ideal career for me but I am unsure of what pathways I could take to attain this. If anybody could give me some advice or let me know what I could expect to be doing as a biophysicist, I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks a lot, ElleD :)

    Generally biophysics is a subset of the physics department in any given university, so your best bet is to get a physics degree. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
