Graduate Diploma in Arts GradDipArts
The Graduate Diploma in Arts offers people who already hold a bachelor's degree (such as a BCom, BFA or BSc) an opportunity to study arts in-depth.
It is designed to provide a qualification for graduates seeking to qualify for entry to postgraduate qualifications in Arts, or to extend or upgrade their existing qualifications.
Candidates must have qualified for a bachelor's degree. For entry to graduate courses a B average or better is normally required.
Students normally take courses from the BA schedule, approved by the Head of the relevant school/department/programme and the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences.
They are required to pass courses totalling not fewer than 120 points; of these 90 points must be at 300-level, including 60 in a single subject. A maximum of 15 points towards the Graduate Diploma in Arts may be taken from subjects not in the BA schedule. Normally all courses would be from the same subject.
One year full-time or up to five years part-time.
