Physics BSc Or MPhys

  1. Apr 7, 2013 #1
    How does a BSc in Physics compare to a MPhys when it comes to career prospects? I don't want to do a Phd so I have no reason to do a MPhys fro that reason alone.

    I live in the UK by the way.

    MPhys in the US is now a requirement with new regulation for the jobs in that field. I don't know what things are like in the UK. If you do go for the PhD, just keep applying places and drop it like a bad habit when you have a good offer.

    What sort of career are you looking to go into? It it is a science field, or involves research in some way, then I would see why the MPhys would be beneficial, but if you are going into a graduate scheme, then a BSc would suffice.
