Prerequisites for the Post Graduate Certificate and  Post Graduate Diploma

You will need one of the following:

  • a 3,000 hr Degree plus 6 months experience
  • a 2,000 + hr Diploma or other qualification plus 3 years experience
  • a 1,000 + hr qualification plus 5 or more years of appropriate experience
  • at least 500 hrs formal study at least 10 years appropriate experience

If you are not sure whether you meet the above prerequisites please contact:  info@adlhomestudy.co.uk for further assistance

The Diploma is awarded upon completion of the following:

  • Five Post Graduate approved modules with course codes of 200+ and 300+ (100+ codes are not acceptable)
  • Dissertation BGN330

Example:   Environmental Studies VEN100 would not be acceptable as a module, since the course code is 100. However, Environmental Assessment BEN301, would be appropriate as it is a 300 level course.

Time Scale:

The post-graduate certificate must be completed within eighteen months of first logging into your course.
