You guys are busy condemning Biochemistry and microbiology. How about anatomy or physiology? Those two are the worst courses in the world. Most especially anatomy. It's as hard as a nutcracker and yet as useless as a used tissue paper dumped inside the toilet.

Hello guys , i would like to know which of these courses has more job oppurtunities as i was asked to select my second choic of study in the university i want to apply for? which of them has a greater chance of job oppurtunities in nigeria?
bro forget, I have brothers who did both courses in the uni.. The truth remains, if you are not having the connections you have a very very slim chance. Those courses don't have opportunities except you want to use it to further abroad.

This may also help you.

There are many microbiologists but fewer biochemists. That could also tell you that the Labour market may have been more saturated with one than the other. M.Sc. Biochemistry could also make you become a hotcake if you are thinking of the industry. You would have counted about 5 M.Sc. Microbiology before counting one in Biochemistry, if you by chance see one.

If I had the power, I'd scrap the two courses as degree programmes in Nigerian universities. They are only meant to be taken by medical students.

It's because much people do not know about MEDICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE (MLS) that's why they are dying for biochemistry and microbiology.....
The only courses I can advise my family members to study In medical school is
Medicine and surgery
Pharmacy
Medical laboratory science
Nursing science
Radiography
-
Apart from this.. You are on your own.

Lol no qualification is few now even PhDs jst a simple advert n 100s of thousands will flood ur office with application.

Apart from law, medicine, MLS, nursing, pharmacy n may be teaching subjects almost every other course in Nigerian universities are saturated in the nigerian labour market

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

Sarcasm, right? Well, if you're talking in term of concepts taught in both fields, then you certainly don't know what you're talking about. Biochemistry is greatly differ from microbiology..... It's like saying chemistry and biology are one and the same.

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

Why tag this wonderful opinion My own two cents?
Your say is your say, do yourself a favour and try to remove that sentence from your head permanently.

Back to the question, If you think Biochemistry and microbiology are that useless what about botany and zoology? grin
I study botany in school now, and I'll admit it's the most useless thing that have ever happened to me, I'm just lucky to have utilized the opportunity my school presented me and learnt a trade.
Honestly, we don't know the true worth of all these courses until we are in the university, most science courses are useless as well, they just have big big names. This country now na to learn handwork oo, school no pay at all.

Aside from pharmacy, I don't think those courses you mentioned are exempted either in terms of saturation in the Labour market. These days, there are jobless consultant doctors and barristers, how much less ordinary medical officers? Acquiring university degrees is becoming like acquiring the fundamentals. Individuals need to plan how to make a living in a hopeless and competitive nation like ours.

Pls go for medical laboratory sci or nursing. Am a medlab student and I know what am talking about. In Nigerian labour market, Biochem and microbio Are almost usless.

Your chances of getting it as a second choice is very slim. I advice you to fill pure chemistry. And remove any medical related
Thanks

Must you work with your first degree? Studying Anatomy, Physiology or Biochemistry is only a means to an end.

In the US, they are a prerequisite for the study of medicine or Dentistry. There isn't a physician who didn't get drilled in the basic Med sciences.
