    Hi,

    How are they considered by employers alongside standalone masters? Any major considerations I should be taking into account?

    Thanks

    Depends on the field.

    I can only speak for engineering, in which they're considered equivalent to a postgraduate/standalone masters.

    Other fields might be different though.

    Yeah, isn't doing a masters with engineering is fairly standard practice?

    I'm on a life sciences degree.

    I'm on an integrated masters of pharmacology. The bonus for me was that I was on the old fees so I get a masters for a significant discount. I think the main benefit for you would be that you wouldn't have to self fund an integrated masters, whereas you would with a stand alone. In my experience (yr 3 of 4) it's considered equal, and I'd fully expect to get a PHD offer with one.
