Default masters degree / PhD in UK

I am considering doing a masters degree in chemistry (4 years) in the UK,
with the 3rd year in industry - would this be better or at least as good as
4 yearse without work in industry?


P.S. would a PhD really bunk up my salary?? just wondering...

Probably not what you want to hear, but I did a chem PhD (also
UK), but made the move to IT immediately afterwards. I earn far
more in IT than I would in chemistry, and have a lot more
flexibility with where I work and who I work for.

I do miss chemistry though.

The year in industry can be beneficial. With careful selection of where one
goes, you might find that the company offers you a permanent job when you
graduate. The last two M.Chem students we had, were given job offers when
they graduated (and no job was advertised outside....)

Ah, a Ph.D... Depends on what and where you want to do/be. A nice little
earner of being in Discovery Research in a Pharmaceutical company? - you
won't get a look in without one! Salary will also be higher, say 4-6K
depending on the company/location - but you lose 3 years earning! If you
are really smart then find a nice company that will let you do a part time
Ph.D., the reasearch bit is not too bad, but the writing up is a real pain -
takes 6 years though.
