    Currently in my second year of a chemistry degree bsc and trying to decide on future choices.
    I am enjoying my subject and thinking that I would quite like to go into postgrad, possibly to a phd one day. My university does not offer the mchem option, (its my local one and I went through a foundation 'year zero' at the uni before stage 1).
    So I was wondering would it be better to do msc after graduating with the bsc or try to transfer to a Uni that does mchem for finale year. As in what is looked better on and from a funding viewpoint. (currently on the 3k tariff so would assume changing uni would put me onto the 9k, yet for masters have to secure the funding independently)
    I've noticed while browsing phds some do accept just a bsc, but I assuming this is unlikely generally, especially for fully funded ones.
    Also if I decide not to go down the more academic route, how much of an advantage do mchem graduates have over bsc ones in the chemistry job market?

    Thanks for the help

    Would this be better posted in the Postgraduate forum?
