Career paths to choose with a qualification in General Science

Are you an individual who has studied science and has a qualification in General Science? Then, read on because you have come to the right place.

There are only a handful of students graduating in scientific subjects in Sri Lanka due to the scarcity of students joining the science stream and the highly competitive learning process. And even then, not everyone is eligible to pursue a career in medicine, so the question is ‘what can you do in Sri Lanka with a qualification in General Science?’

One of the biggest reasons individuals with prospective qualifications in science face challenges when it comes to a career path is that they are not aware of the possible opportunities linked to their qualifications. A general science degree unlocks a variety of career interests, chiefly for students interested in careers related to the health sector such as nursing, caregiving, therapy, psychology, pharmaceuticals, and medical technology. General science prepares students for science, technology, or natural history careers combined with practical knowledge. That’s not all. Individuals majoring in General Science can also become excellent teachers in science.

– Registered nurse
