After I did my A levels,I have joined B.Sc in physics which is of three years,but if I want to go to the US for Masters,they either seek for 16 years of study or 4 years of bachelor programs but I am doing three years bachelor program so would that be a problem for me if I want to go to the US to pursue masters.

If you've finished a Bachelor's degree from an accredited UK uni, it's as good as having a Bachelor's degree from an accredited US school. Thus, it should not deter you from pursuing a MS or MSc at any US school.

What do you intend to do with a MSc in physics? In the U.S., students generally proceed directly from a BS to a PhD - and the "MSc component" consists of the first 2 years of taught coursework of the PhD... Not all universities even offer an MSc separately, and funding is much more difficult to come by than for a PhD.

firebird is right. Most elite US schools offer an integrated MS and PhD program nowadays.


roshanhero, it doesn't matter where you earned your undergrad as long as it's an accredited institution in your country. Most US schools do have listings of accredited schools in every country including Nepal. If ever you happen to apply to a US school that does not have your school in their list, they would usually ask for additional certifications and authentications, which I think are easy to comply. You need not worry, unless your grades aren't impressive and your GRE scores are average.
