    Guys, I'm in Yr 13 and am applying for undergraduate courses in university. I want do an MSci at Queen Mary, but I'm not sure what the criteria is. It does say that it's an undergraduate course, but I'm lost...

    Also, loads of websites use MSc or MSci: any difference?

    An MSci is a 4 year degree, first, you do the Bsc content (for 3 years) then one year with MSc level content.

    MSc tends to last for a full calendar year and is a postgraduate qualification.

    MSci is an undergraduate masters qualification, meaning you do an extra academic year (notice how it's not calendar) on top of your three-year Bachelors degree.

    If you need to get Chartered status, then doing the MSci means that you will meet all of the academic requirements to obtain such status (However, you can do the BSc then do an MSc instead to gain Chartered status).

    The MSci is also funded in the exactly the same way as the rest of your three-year course meaning you'll be eligible for the tuition fee loan, and the maintenance loan.

    You can get a postgraduate loan for your MSc, but it will probably just about cover your fees and not your living costs.
