Biology: Graduate Certificate and Diploma
Graduate Certificates and Diplomas provide recognised awards for graduates and professionals who wish to update and extend their subject knowledge. They may be undertaken as part of a programme of continual professional development or as stand-alone qualifications.
You may find these awards of relevance if you are a teacher of biology or environmental science, an employee of a conservation NGO or Government body, or an environmental consultant. You may even be a relatively recent graduate, with a desire to broaden experience at Honours level.
These awards are designed to provide you with specialised knowledge, understanding and practical skills in certain aspects of Biology at Honours level (Level 6). As part of this, it is also intended that you gain some personal experience of the approach, practice and evaluation of scientific research. Module content is underpinned by staff consultancy and research activity and so is up-to-date and highly relevant in terms of subject knowledge and professional practice.
You must complete two modules for a Graduate Certificate and four for a Graduate Diploma.
