    can anyone advise me:

    I am currently on a three year BSc Chemistry at QMUL. I have until the end of next week to decide whether I want to change to a four year MSci.

    If I change, I would pay the current (~£1200) tuition fee. If I stay on the three year BSc, leave and then decide I want to complete a masters some time in the future I'll obviously have to pay the £3000 top up fee.

    How much more beneficial would getting a masters be? Do employers (in science) aid (financially) employees if they need to have a masters once they have joined?

    Any advice will be much appreciated!

    Not sure how much more beneficial it would be !

    But depends on where u want to work and the levels of competition !

    The least it will give you is at least an edge over others if nothing more !
    Personally I would do it but depends on what u want to end up in etc

    I'm not 100% sure exactly what I'd want to do when I graduate, I'd like to stay in chemistry (or science in general).

    Thanks for replying though.
