Differences between providers

Although many of the compulsory modules will be similar, each Diploma course will offer different compulsory modules and electives and will vary in terms of options and timetables. The Society recommends taking time to research the different universities offering the Diploma to ensure you are making an informed decision as to where you are going to apply.

Once again the Society will host a Virtual Diploma Fair, in February to allow students to review the information from all providers.
