Does anyone here have any experience of doing a PhD (biosciences) and if so, would you say that doing one is a good or terrible idea?
Just for a bit of background, I went to uni as a mature student to study pharmacy, which I am currently doing my pre-reg year for. I got bitten by the research bug whilst completing my dissertation and am really keen to go back and do a PhD in a related field. After the pre-reg of course! I turned 30 this year so feel like maybe I'm a little old to be starting a PhD. Am I right in thinking that being a qualified pharmacist could help with future career options after the PhD, be that in industry or academia.
Any tips or advice would be great. Thanks!
