Subject:      SAS Career Info - Advice Please

I have 12 years SPSS, Minitab, a lot of Computing, a Maths degree, a little Science background, a teacher qual. My 12 years have been spent working for a university. I'd like to move and work as a Biostatistician working with drug trials, but I have no SAS experience. I hope to complete an M.Sc. in Biometrics from Reading (assuming I can get a place on the course!). What I'd like to know is how big a step is it moving from SPSS to SAS and has anyone on the list got a similiar background to mine and moved into the SAS/drug trial world? I'd like to hear your opinions for/against? I would have thought that with my experience my learning curve would be quite quick.

I would also be interested in the prospects for employment after the M.Sc. in Europe. I am 37 at the moment ... so there's still some life in this old dog yet!!!

Thanks for all yer help!!! Greatly appreciated.
