This is a one year course which is specifically designed for the mature student who wishes either to up-skill in a particular discipline or to move into a different avenue of study. Provided that the programme of study has the appropriate number of 200-level and 300-level points and can be demonstrated to be cohesive, then it is entirely flexible and can be tailored to the needs of the student. To gain entry, a candidate may have either a first degree or appropriate technical qualification and experience. A candidate who excels in his/her programme of study may be admitted directly to a Postgraduate Diploma of Science.

Programme Requirements

Every programme of study for the diploma shall

  1. consist of papers worth at least 120 points;
  2. include at least 72 points for papers at or above 300-level;
  3. include such other work as may be prescribed in particular cases.
