do you know any european BSc for chemistry/biology/etc?
Do you reside in Europe? If so:
The Open University: BSc (Honours) Natural Sciences
Q64 - BSc (Honours) Natural Sciences - Open University Degree
BA / BSc Open Degree
QD - BA/BSc Open degree - Open University Degree
the problem with these people is that they dont offer (or at least, as far as I have understood) a precisely defined title, eg BSc in Chemistry, BSc in Pharmacology, etc
who would continue reading, or moreover, who would employ you, while he reads your CV where you say you have BSc in Natural Sciences ???
What European languages have you mastered?
Someone who thinks the natural sciences draw on each other, perhaps!
i know, but how many are these??? that's what i am saying...
well, from my experience, when a nanotechnology company wants a chemist, he will consider first the one who has a "BSc in Chemistry with Nanotechnology", then a "BSc in Chemistry" and last the "BSc in Natural Sciences"
and when he receives a pack of cv's, he wont even bother to try to guess whether "Natural Sciences" fits his needs
and you know what, he is correct, since Natural Sciences can be from to astronomy to oceanography
I'm not in that field, so I don't exactly know, but I would wager that the person with the most experience in the specific area of employment is the person most likely to get the job. In most cases, the degree title is secondary. Important, but secondary. You can shoot that full of holes, if you want. But it is usually a safe bet.
You might want to do your due diligence on what it will take for you to get hired in your chosen field before worrying about degree titles. I would think that internships, lab experience and publications would matter a bit more than a title, and you might also want to find out if a UK honours degree is enough (it may well be for all I know).
Why then would you focus on europe where 90% of the schools are not really accessible for you. Why not the USA?
Fees are extremely higher
Also it would be more easy for me to attend in person a part of the programme if needed
Last, accreditation and equivalence of degrees is easy within EU
