    Thumbs up Medicinal Chemistry- UNSW or UOW ?

    I am currently in a mind-boggling situation and some advice would be much appreciated.
    I have recieved an offer into Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) Deans Scholar at UOW but I also received an offer to study Medicinal Chemistry (Honours) at UNSW.

    Which is a better choice in terms of future opportunities and the education I will recieve, UOW Deans Scholar Undergraduate Bachelor or UNSW Undergraduate Bachelor?

    So, UNSW or UOW for Medicinal Chemistry ???
    (Thank you in advance)

    Just out of curiosity, what type of jobs would one get from medicincal chemistry? Cause i heard medical science in general is a horrible course and that people shouldn't pick it. Correct me if im wrong.

    Essentially you are getting the same degree so you need to think about what uni offers you other than academics, e.g. Proximity, facilities, student life, trimester/semester system

    Medical science is quite different from medicinal chemistry (the former is a more general course compared to the latter-which is much more focused on a specific branch of chemistry)

    Edit: What do you call those people who research and design drugs?
