I'm a 1st year Physics student from the UK that's trying to get informed. After seeing the patent attorney thread, I did a little digging. Not sure how it works in other places, but in the UK you're required to have a degree in science (not a PhD, and as far as I'm aware, there's no requirement for a master's). From what I've read, you are trained on-the-job while sitting exams throughout your training period which lasts a minimum of 2 years (generally 4-6, apparently). You're paid a relatively low starting salary (£24,000ish), and obviously this increases as you gain experience and greatly so when you qualify.

What other career paths are there like this, besides a doctorate? I'm looking for ideas with this apprenticeship-style training, or other options that require further specialisation but not necessarily further university education.

I'm sure there's more. Thanks!




tl;dr First year physics student looking for post-graduate, apprenticeship-style training for specialised jobs that use the degree - e.g. patent attorney. (britain)
