Studying a graduate diploma helps you develop knowledge and skills in your chosen subject area which will enable you to undertake a new career or further study.
Graduate diplomas are intended to provide the equivalent of a major in a subject area that is different to your first degree’s major. You may be eligible if you haven’t studied for a degree before if you can demonstrate an interest in the subject area and a satisfactory academic ability.
Candidates must gain 120 points at 100 level or above, including at least 75 points at 300 level or above, in the Graduate Diploma subjects.
If you are a graduate with a Mathematics degree, or even with a strong Mathematical component to your degree, you will be a valuable person in today's workforce, with a qualification that appeals to a wide range of employers including banks, insurance companies, schools and government departments.
There is strong employer demand for Mathematicians, due to a shortage of Mathematics graduates and in particular a critical shortage of Mathematics teachers.
Studying Mathematics in combination with another subject means you can work in a number of different fields, such as Chemistry, Biological Sciences, Earth Sciences, Economics, Finance, Engineering (Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Materials and Process Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering), Physics, Electronics, Banking and Meteorology.
