They are both one and the same. Just minor differences.

chances of you landing a job is slim.. I would advise you go for either medical lab science or pharmacy.. I studied biochemistry.. and I'm yet to work with it.. you can do Msc to increase your chances in the brewery industry if that's where you aiming for.. just my opinion though

Honestly, you guys have spoken my mind, you guys just told the OP the bitter truth.

I have been a graduate of microbiology for the past 5years, you can't believe that I have never used it to work in my field before.

Not that I have not been seeing jobs, but the experience they request for, is like walking from Nigeria to Chicago.

Sometimes, I always think otherwise, I have been to the last stage of an interview before in an FMCG coy, but was turned down on two occasion that I don't havr experience in my field.

Even, I was turned down to work as a lab scientist in ministry of health, just because they said, a microbiologist without medical licence can't work in the field.

Infact, these days I don't even go near most of all these my field again.

I prefer applying in other field, where what they needed is what you can bring in not really your certificate sometimes.


OP, to be honest with you, please go for medical lab science, or you go for better lucrative course, leave biochemistry and microbiology out of the page.

Majority of my friends we finished together and some that also finished as biochemist are now working in bank, some access, some uba and some first bank.

I have two graduates of Biochemistry as close friends. Both, out of frustration, are teachers now being paid paltry sum. You know what, both of them are folks whose academic shoe latchets I'm not worthy to loose...as they are both experts in Further Maths, Maths, Physics and Chemistry. So, my dear, flee these courses.

Op, i suspect you applied for medicine and now the person trying to help ask you to choose one of the two.
Truth be told they are both USELESS. Go for mathematics. All science courses are useless in Nigeria, we are not advance to scientific level we are only parambulating.
Go for social science courses.

I sincerely appreciate you all for telling the op the truth. Pls, don't suffer your self or waste your time with those courses cos you will be frustrated having studied hard in sch just as the medical students and be left hanging in the labor market. I tell you its really frustrating., study a course that is more or less like a vocation, something you can do with your hands, something real. Like the medical courses, acct, architect, fine art, agriculture etc I pray they will listen and yield to this advice. Its not abt having a university degree any longer, its about what you can do with your degree. My own two cents, thanks

Do what you know how to do best. Be it BioXmistry or Microbiology or Physics or Hausa.

Regardless of what you studied (with special exception to Med.Docs cus of their few numbers), hold this in mind;
PERSON WEY GO GET JOB GO GET JOB.

So its better to choose a course you are really good at...
