Sharing is caring :)

The future potential job demand and salary is one of the criteria that students look for when choosing the course to study. With the rapidly changing technology landscape, the job market is so different from how it was many years ago. When it comes to choosing a career, you should consider the occupations that will be the most essential and relevant in 10 or 20 years, and try to avoid the ones that are likely to be replaced by automation or artificial intelligence. While we can’t predict the future, here are ten occupations and their related course of study where highly specialised and experienced individuals will be in great demand.

I thank life for happening, thank every twist and turn, I believe that there is a reason for every single thing, a reason for every worry and concern. 

Sharing is caring :)

马来西亚前5所顶尖牙科系大学

Sharing is caring :)

你是否也有当牙医的梦想?对牙医学有兴趣,但又不知道高中毕业后的路该怎么走?希望这篇文章会对你起到帮助

为什么选修牙科系?

选择牙科学的好处

1. 优厚的薪资

首先,你可能会对牙医所能收获的薪资感到惊叹。根据自身的能力,牙科系毕业生通常都会在完成学业后获得一笔可观的收入。

2. 市场需求量大

不得不提,牙科系是近年来市场上需求量最高的科系之一。随着国家的人口增加,人民们对牙医的需求量也越来越大。

3. 接触不同的人

再来,身为一名牙医每天工作时有机会接触到不同人,并能扩大人脉和体验社交的乐趣。身为一名牙医让你有机会学习如何与不同人相处,每天都需要与陌生人和同事们交流以及沟通,让你每天过上充实的生活。

选择牙科学的短处

1. 一样的日常

众所周知,牙医几乎每日都做着有规律的工作。对有的人而言,反复相同的工作性质相对而言会有些无聊,因此缺乏刺激和接触新事物的新鲜感。

2. 高学费

此外,众所周知牙科学的学费不低。完成整个牙科学的学费金额绝对不便宜,对于经济方面有困难的学生而言,这将会是个难题。

3. 与人相处

如上面所述,牙医每天都需要见不一样的客人。这虽然是个优点,但同时也兼具了挑战性。身为一名牙医需要有足够的耐心和时刻保持专业态度才能取得成功。

学习牙科须具备的关键技能

  • 注意力高度集中 – 身为一名牙医你需要能注重每个小细节,并且能够时时刻刻全神贯注在治疗上
  • 亲力亲为 – 牙医显然需要具备良好的手动技能,因为在进行每项治疗时他们都需要用到双手。因此,你应该对你灵巧的手动技能抱有信心。
  • 沟通能力 – 在医疗领域工作很常需要你与人交谈,这当中包括了同事以及客户。所以杰出的沟通能力是保持良好关系的主要因素之一,这样一来还能间接塑造优良的工作环境。

马来西亚牙科学的基本入学标准

接下来,你需要了解你是否有达到读牙科专业的标准 – 牙科学士学位的标准很高,只有课业成绩达标的学生才有机会被大学录取。

Pharmacy vs. Pharmaceutical Science: Which One to Choose?

Sharing is caring :)

Have a passion for helping people? Are you fascinated with chemistry and the human body? Want to pursue your career in the world of specialized drugs? Then, you’ve come to the right place. 

BUT, WAIT – confused on the difference between Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science? Read more here to know everything there is to know about both courses before picking the right one for you! 

What is Pharmacy?

Pharmacy is the study of specialized drugs as medicine and the right way to use, store, preserve and prescribe it. Pharmacy is known to be a combination of medical science and chemistry – focusing on the discovering, manufacturing, disposal and control of these drugs. The study of pharmacy equips students with the knowledge of drug composition, their adverse effects, interactions with other drugs and toxicity within the human body. Understanding the form of treatment and it’s pathological process is extremely important in this field as you are responsible for the chemicals being digested by humans. 

What does a Pharmacist do?

As a Pharmacist, your main roles and responsibilities would include providing advice and  guiding customers in the safest way of consuming these medications whilst informing them of the accurate dosage, potential adverse effects the medication could cause after consumption. Besides, other pathways of pharmacy practice would include the “behind the scenes” of how drugs and medications are discovered and manufactured before they hit the shelves of your neighbourhood pharmacies such as Guardian, Watsons and Caring. Pharmacists are essentials to our community as they ensure the safety and efficacy of drug information being consumed by patients. 

What do you study for a Pharmacy degree?

As a Pharmacy undergraduate student, areas of study you will undertake include: 

  • Human Anatomy – structure and functions of organs, how the body works, including studies of physiology and biochemistry 
  • Drug Disposition – how medicines are discover, manufactured and produced along with how they react in the human body 
  • Comprehensive care  – analytical thinking of how to best manage diseases and disorders of patients, able to create the best method of treatment 
  • Professional Practice – experience daily life of a pharmacist, learn customer service operations, ethical and legal do’s and don’ts within the context of a pharmacy

Career Opportunities with a Pharmacy Degree

A Pharmacy degree opens up multiple career pathways for you to choose from as you will be able to work  in pharmacies, medical clinics, hospitals, universities, and government institutions! 

Keep in mind that upon the completion of your Pharmacy Degree (4 years) – it is compulsory for you to undergo one year of compulsory service training at any location that is recognized by the Pharmacy Board of Malaysia! Between the training period, you are required to sit for an exam – “Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination” before successfully being able to practice pharmacology as a Fully Registered Pharmacist (FRP) which takes around 6 years. 

Examples of career opportunities for you once you’ve qualified as a Fully Registered Pharmacist (FRP) includes: 

  • Clinical Pharmacist 
  • Regulatory Pharmacist
  • Clinical Research Assistant 
  • Drug Information Service 
  • Pharmacologist
  • Pharmaceutical sales executive

What is Pharmaceutical Science?

Constratingly, Pharmaceutical Science is known to be a subfield of Pharmacy. Pharmaceutical Science in comparison to Pharmacy are like Aviation Engineers in comparison to Pilots. Pharmaceutical Science focuses on the foundation of drug discovery and development. Pharmaceutical science focuses on how medicines work- it’s safety and efficacy, their impact on the body and their effect on the prevention and treatment of disease. Pharmaceutical Science is a very hands-on field for those who are deeply fascinated by the designing, synthesizing, testing and profiling of potential drugs to be used in the world of medicine. The optimization of various properties of existing or potential drugs are of importance to ensure effectiveness and safety upon consumption. 

What does a Pharmaceutical Scientist do?

As a Pharmaceutical Scientist, you will be required to apply biological and chemical principles into your work to tweak molecules into becoming whole compounds that will be able to address present or future medical needs. To become an expert in this field, you should have a strong knowledge and passion in all things science especially chemistry and biology.

What do you study for a Pharmaceutical Science degree?

As a Pharmaceutical Science student, areas of study you will undertake include: 

  • Medicinal Chemistry–  intersection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological specialties
  • Pharmaceutical Biotechnology – technology that utilizes biological systems, living organisms or parts of this for the development of drugs 
  • Pharmacoeconomics –  the comparison of different pharmaceutical drugs based on value 
  • Pharmacogenetics – the study of the presence of genes in the effectiveness of different drugs to the human body 

If you’re someone who enjoys working in the lab, this course would be perfect for you as you’d be spending most of your time gaining lab skills. 

Career Opportunities with a Pharmaceutical Science Degree

A Pharmaceutical Science degree opens up multiple career pathways for you to choose from as you will be able to work in research facilities. pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and government institutions! 

Examples of career opportunities for you once you’ve graduated includes: 

  • Research Scientist 
  • Drug Discovery & Design Manager 
  • Regulatory Affair (for those that want to work outside the lab)
  • Medicinal Chemist 
  • Product Developer 
  • Quality Control Chemist

5 Reasons to Study Environmental Science in Malaysia (2020)

Sharing is caring :)

Our planet environment is very important to us because it is where we share resources with other species, and most importantly, it is where we live. Sadly, our environment is currently in an unhealthy situation. One of the indicators to know how unhealthy it is is by looking at how worse global warming has become in the past year. According to NASA, the average temperature of the planet’s surface has increased by about 0.7 degrees Celsius, ten times faster than the average rate of ice-age-recovery warming. Furthermore, the sea level has risen to nearly double than the last century and is accelerating slightly every year.

But, there’s never a “too late” for everything.

Our own environment can still be fixed in various different ways. As a younger generation, we must start to participate in saving our mother nature. To get a deeper knowledge of the environment and ways to preserve it, studying Environmental Science can be one of the ways!

What is actually an Environmental Science?

Environmental Science is a study that combines both the understanding and the practical skills for the knowledge and management of environmental problems. Knowledge of environmental science is important in understanding not only the relationship with human’s actions but also the effective environmental limits and how it affects the societies as well as economics.

As a result of such a drastic environmental change, the demand for qualified environmental scientists to appraise the changing situation and generate a positive result has increased. Here, we’re going to provide 5 reasons why you should choose environmental science as your major!

5 Reasons to choose environmental science

1. Make a difference in environmental and social issues

One of the greatest feelings in the world is knowing that our own hands can be involved in a great change for the world. Thus, it is one of the advantages of taking environmental science, the fact that this field of study is a hugely impactful career choice, not only for yourself but also for your future generations! Involved in this industry will make sense of feeling that you are doing something meaningful and giving back to mother nature.

2. Friends with the outdoor world

After you graduate, most environmental scientists would most likely to work outdoors, exploring the outside world and enjoy nature while gaining a better understanding of the current situation around them. If you’re the type of person that doesn’t like to be stuck 40 hours per week behind a desk, then environmental science is exactly what you should take!

3. Fast-growing job division

As mentioned above, the demand for environmental scientists has significantly increased to create a more positive impact and appraise the changing situation. The job market is growing, and the professions are improving. Therefore, taking an environmental science degree could be your opportunity to grow your career in the future. Below we provide some of the career options that you could choose:

  1. Environmental Consultant
  2. Geoscientists
  3. nature conservation officer
  4. Resource management
  5. conservation scientist
  6. Environmental engineer
  7. Marine biologist
  8. Sustainability specialist
4. Lead to a rewarding career

One of the indicators of job satisfaction level is the amount of salary that a person earns. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2018, the average annual salary of an environmental scientist is $71,130 (~RM 297181) and it will keep on increasing throughout the year. Environmental science is also predicted to grow at 8% from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for any occupation.

5. Studying the “bigger picture”

Environmental science is considered as a multi-disciplinary course, since it allows you to study various subjects, from subjects related to science such as biology, chemistry, geology, ecology, to social science-related subjects such as management. 

Skills and competencies needed for an Environmental Scientist

  • Good Communication Skills

Verbal communication, listening, and writing, are the skills that are crucial and allows you to cooperate and share research findings with your colleagues.

  • Self-Discipline 

You are often expected to work in a team, which requires you to have high motivation and can be relied on by others.
