Course summary

Are you changing disciplines? Need to improve your level of English? Don't otherwise meet the academic entry requirements for direct entry to a master's degree? Our Graduate Diploma in Humanities and Social Sciences offers non-UK students a one-year pathway to postgraduate study at Queen Mary and other UK institutions.

Running from either September to June or January to July, this highly intensive diploma is primarily aimed at those wanting to study business and management, politics and international relations, linguistics or film.

You'll take two compulsory modules along with two other modules of your choice, which will be determined by the subjects you want to study at Masters Level after completing your diploma. You'll develop solid knowledge in your chosen academic field, and improve your ability to use academic English effectively at postgraduate level.
