diploma v degree in MT

Post by jennifer1972 » Wed Dec 10, 2014 10:19 am

Hello. I am a new member and have a question that some of you may be able to help me with. I have seen that some of the drama schools offer a 1 year conversion course from diploma to degree. Can anyone who has been on a 3 yr diploma course do the conversion to degree, or only students who have done their course at that particular school eligible to then do the conversion course?

I'll jump in before (or maybe even after) the move.

It depends is the answer - because there are a number of courses that have "diploma' in their title and they don't all sit at the same academic place and level. For a course to be topped up to a degree, the university that validates it need to have looked at the content, compared to the degree programme on offer. This is why sometimes top ups are a year but others are more like 18 months because there are bits missing. The only way to know for sure is to ask!
