      After I finished my GCSEs I did A levels in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and French.
      Then I went to university for four years to do a Master’s degree in Chemistry, followed by another four years to complete my PhD.
      However, not all scientists spend so long at university! For example, some may learn through an apprenticeship after their GCSEs, some may study at university for 3 years.
      When you are thinking about what jobs you might want to do in the future it’s often useful to speak to your teachers or careers advisor to find out what options there are!

      If we’re looking at Primary School through to finishing my Masters I was in education for 19 years! And I’m hoping to go back to do a Biology Masters as well so I’ll be adding to that total!

      I did study mostly in France where the system is a bit different respect to the UK. If I start counting from when I entered the primary school until I finished my PhD it is 20 years in total!!!
