MS and MSc both are the same, its Masters of Science. Most of the US universities refer Masters of Science as MS and in UK they term it as MSc.  We do application process for Anglia Ruskin University, we help you with your admission process.

MS and MSc degree are different. Since their full forms are same i.e. Master of Science but they are different from each other.

MS is a professional course whereas M.Sc. covers a wide base of knowledge and skills.

Candidates who have completed their M.Sc. degree can also pursue MS degree. But MS Degree holders usually don’t go for M.Sc. degree.
