About this video

Deciding which topic to study can lead to painful indecision. If you’ve already graduated but still doubt your choice of field, is it too late to change? According to Professor of Developmental Biology, Christine L. Mummery, it definitely isn’t. After all, she moved into Stem Cell Biology via Physics and Biophysics. And, two of her peers arrived via English Literature and History.

In this brief module, she explains that changing disciplines has its advantages, as you will bring important skills and knowledge that offer fresh and useful insights for cross-disciplinary research. Tatter is an area growing in importance to funders; as applicants are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their projects have cross-disciplinary applications.

You’ll come away reassured that no study is wasted study as there are always opportunities to use the skills you’ve learned.
