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. We recommend 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.

Every year in January ahead of applications opening, we run a Virtual Diploma Fair to allow you to compare providers. This is currently closed. If you have any specific questions for Diploma providers, we recommend you get in touch with them directly. For general questions, explore this section of the website and get in touch with us at
