I understand the difference in how these qualifications are attained, but am wondering if there is a difference as far as prospective employers or doctorate providers are concerned..

thanks

Undergrad 'M' degrees are just ordinary degrees with an extra year - they were devised like this to get around the old lack of funding problem before SF could give loans for postgrad Masters - SF has always allowed 4 years for UG degrees. They are not automatically equal to a postgrad Masters,

Many UK Unis will accept an undergrad M degree for a PhD in STEM subjects - not in Soc Sci or Humanities etc - but EU and other overseas Unis will want a specifically postgrad Masters for all subjects.
