    This may be a stupid question, but does finishing an MEng exclude you in some way from doing an MSc?

    My university do post-graduate MSc in things like Earthquake engineering, which is obviously relevant to an MEng graduate, but I never hear about people going from MEng to MSc.

    I'm doing a Diplôme d'Ingenieur in France it's a European Master 2 level degree (whatever it means in your system) and I got offer from several UK uni to do a MSc in the same field. So I would tend to think that you can go to an MSc if you want to.

    Does MEng is less regarded than a BSc ?

    MEng is a 4 year engineering course, so I think it would be better than an BSc for anything engineering related, but not suitable for very sciency things (although I can try).

    I'm not sure I understand your post. Are you talking about courses from the same university, or even department ? If so there may be so much overlap as to make it redundant or not permitted. Otherwise I can see no barrier, as long as you are paying. Although it may have changed recently I was told that subsidy is not available (or reduced?) for postgrad courses that are not at a higher level than one you already possess.

    Why do you want to do this MSc ? The M.Eng courses (usually) combine the B.Eng and M.Eng in order to satisfy education requirements of the institutions such as IET. To get Chartered you then need responsible employment experience. Which is probably why not many M.Eng people go straight to another course.

    An MSc can obviously stand alone and if you want a further Masters to specialise or whatever then fair enough, but if you plan to be a Chartered Engineer and skip completing an M.Eng then check that the MSc you are considering is accredited by the appropriate institute.

    TBD
