If completing a Physics MSci, the fourth year contains 120 credits. Therefore being equivalent, in terms of credits, to a BSc plus a post-grad diploma. How do employers, or academics if going into research, view an MSci? Do they generally consider the MSci to be equal to a BSc plus an MSc (even though it contains less credits). Or do they equate an MSci to a BSc plus a post-grad diploma, which it does equate in terms of credits? Thanks.
