What does subject to validation mean?
For 2016 entry the PgDip award is going to be changed to an MSc award. The new MSc award is subject to validation, which means that the additional credits are subject to scrutiny, to ensure they meet the university’s academic quality standards. The outcome of the validation process will be known by May 2016.
The PgDip award will be available only in the event the new MSc award is not validated for 2016 entry.
