The course of study for a Graduate Diploma is 120 credits (eight courses) studied predominantly at the level of the final year of a bachelor's degree. Graduate Diplomas can be completed in two semesters of full time study or studied part-time with no time limit for completion.
Seventy-five of the 120 credits must be at 300 level and (unless otherwise indicated below) a minimum of 60 credits shall be chosen from the relevant undergraduate programme. The remaining credits, including no more than 15 credits at 100 level, may be chosen from any of the bachelor's degree courses offered at Lincoln University. With approval from the relevant Academic Co-ordinator, you may substitute 30 credits at 300 level with appropriate credits at the 600 level and may substitute 30 credits at 300 level with a dissertation (30 credits) at the 600 level.
Your course of study must be approved by the Academic Co-ordinator who will ensure that the combination of courses is relevant and coherent.
The rules on prerequisites for advanced courses would not normally apply to students enrolling in these qualifications. However, the Academic Co-ordinator must be satisfied that you have adequate preparation through previous study or work experience.
We have specialist staff able to help you, in many cases these will be the same staff who deliver lectures to you.
Course planners for other qualifications are available from the planning pages.
