Diplomas and certificates
Our postgraduate taught diplomas and certificates are usually vocational in nature. They normally last one academic year, and offer scope to those wishing to change direction after their first degree.
Many masters programmes are paired with diplomas and/or certificates that have coursework and examinations in common with the degree.
A masters student who does not proceed to the dissertation stage may be awarded the diploma or certificate.
Some programmes allow you to register for a diploma or certificate from the outset.
