PGDip
Postgraduate Diploma

Postgraduate diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree. A postgraduate diploma can often lead to a masters degree.

Postgraduate diplomas generally compromise a one-year full-time programme of graduate papers. They build on attainment in a prior degree and demonstrated practical, professional or scholarly experience.
