I'm currently experiencing a major dilemma. If I choose to apply for a BSc, will it be possible at the end of the 3rd year to actually do a masters at the university I'll be studying in? So basically changing from BSc to MSci.


If it's possible, can you tell me about the process and if there's any difference between the way applicants are seen when applying for a BSc and when applying for a MSci?

Thank you in advance!

So generally an MSci is an integrated or undergrad Masters, and MSC is a standalone postgrad Masters.

Usually you choose at the start (ie through UCAS) to do an MSci, so a 3 year undergrad course and an integrated masters. It is much easier to start on the Masters course and drop back to the BSc than start on a BSc and then try and get on the integrated Masters path.

You can't generally do a standard BSc that doesn't have an integrated Masters and then just pick one up after your third year, but you could go on and do an MSc

Thank you, It makes sense.
