Students who do not have appropriate undergraduate preparation for embarking
on an MA course may apply for the nine-month Graduate Diploma, which may
constitute a qualifying year for the relevant MA course.
The Diploma course is
designed for students with little undergraduate training in
their chosen field and consists of four modules, which are chosen in
consultation with the Director of the course.
Two modules are chosen from the
undergraduate level and two modules at the graduate level and students complete
the appropriate coursework and examinations.
Diploma students also write a
project on a topic of their choice and agreed by the Course Director. All
who complete the year successfully will be awarded a Diploma, whether or not
they proceed to an MA.
