    In September I'll be starting a 4 year MPhys degree, but I don't actually know what qualification I'll have at the end of it.

    I chose the 4 year course because I was told that its harder to get funding if you decide to do a masters after a 3 year course. It was implied that the extra year was pretty much equivalent to a Master's, but I don't know what qualification I'll actually receive.

    Will this allow me to go into a PhD after my degree? and if in the future a job requires a Master's, will I be eligible?

    MPhys is exactly the same as having a bachelors+masters. It's an integrated masters course, so yes you will be eligible for a job that requires masters and you will be able to go straight into a PhD.

    As above, any UK university would consider an MPhys suitable for progressing to a PhD. If you wanted to do a PhD in Europe, it would be safer to do BSc + a 2 year Euromasters. Enrolling on the MPhys is definitely a good idea though. You can switch to a BSc after the first couple of years if your plans change.
