A graduate diploma (GradD, GDip) is generally a postgraduate qualification, although some graduate diplomas involve the study of undergraduate level courses (see postgraduate diploma).

  • A graduate diploma (GradD, GDip) is generally a postgraduate qualification, although some graduate diplomas involve the study of undergraduate level courses (see postgraduate diploma). The diploma is normally taken following a bachelor's degree and a successful award allows progression to a master's degree without having received honours with the bachelor's degree. More recently, postgraduate diplomas have become more popular as they allow graduate-level specialization studies to be completed in half the time of a masters, while still being transferable into a master's degree in the same topic. All of this at half the price of a master's degree—usually between $10,000 and $15,000 for the graduate diploma, as opposed to $20,000 or more for a master's degree[citation needed]. In addition, these diplomas allow one to try specializations such as accounting, without committing the time and money to a full master's degree in the same specialization. Alternatively, it is possible to complete a graduate diploma, start working in the field, and have the company pay for additional courses to attain a master's degree in the same topic later on (on a part-time basis for instance), thereby saving money and time.
