The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.

Philosophy is a study that involves developing wisdom and seeking answers to various life questions. Those who study philosophy gain expertise and experience that help them to best understand how people, both individually and collectively, find fulfillment. This knowledge may be helpful for careers in health, government and information technology.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
