This allows you to gain a further degree with us by completing just 9 courses instead of the usual 12.

You may apply for graduate entry if you hold one of the following:

Graduate Diplomas

We offer Graduate Diplomas in a range of social science subjects, from Accounting and Finance to Politics and International Relations. Academic direction is provided by LSE.

Graduate Diplomas are ideal if you're planning to change careers or to undertake postgraduate study in a different subject area from your first degree.

The level of the course is equivalent to final-year undergraduate study.
