I live in the USA as of now. In a year, I will be graduating with an associate degree in applied science and a biomedical equipment technology advanced certificate.

I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend who lives in Scotland. We'd like to close the gap and get married soon after I graduate, with me moving to be with him in Scotland.

I'm concerned about my job prospects when I get there, especially because I won't have any job experience under my belt. I wonder if/how my degree would be recognized. It seems like most people in the field in the UK have a BSc in some form of engineering or physics, so I would be one of the least educated people there if I did get a job. Though, I think I may have more hands on/practical training from my degree.

I've heard there are a lot of open jobs in England, but I'm wondering if finding one in Scotland will be tough.

Any insight would be great.
