Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci)

You can study towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Science in Physics and Geophysics.

The PGDipSci offers you the opportunity to acquire a postgraduate qualification in a specific subject without undertaking a research-based degree. It is typically undertaken after the completion of a BSc in which you have achieved a satisfactory level of competency in the subject area of the intended diploma.

The programme consists of 120 points from 600 or 700 level courses and may include a dissertation. Enrolment in 600 level courses has to be discussed with the postgraduate coordinator. Full-time students have one year for completion but part-time students can take up to four years. The diploma may be awarded with distinction or merit which is calculated over all courses attempted.
