    The Diploma, offered at Postgraduate (M) level, reflects eight standalone 20 credit modules, which can be combined to form the Diploma Award through four core modules and a selection of two choice modules.

    Each focuses on differing aspects of management practice. However, each module also connects with all the other modules in reflecting the key management functions and occupational requirements for excellence in management.

    These modules, which are academically accredited in their own right, are available to staff from varied disciplines and professional settings.

    Candidates for the PG Diploma award undertake six modules, comprising of one manadatory module and 3 other core modules and a choice of two modules from a possible five. The resulting six-module sequence will form a 120 Credit Postgraduate (M level) Diploma in Leadership and Management for Social Work.

    Candidates completing three modules, one of which includes Managing Diversity (mandatory module), can receive an interim award of Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management for Social Work.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
