The GDipDI is a qualification enabling students to specialise at an advanced level in an area not included in their BDI. It may be used as a transitional qualification providing a pathway from a BDI to the Master of Design Innovation (MDI) in a specific area.
Our GDipDI is a combination of 200–300 level courses from our Bachelor of Design Innovation (BDI) degree and can be awarded in one of the undergraduate specialisations:
This qualification shares the same flexibility to tailor your course of study as the BDI. You can target areas for a chosen career path or that may frame the topic for your master's research in the MDI.
One year of full-time study or up to four years part-time.
Entry in the Graduate Diploma of Design Innovation (GDipDI) normally requires:
- A completed Bachelor’s degree in a related discipline and
- Acceptance by the Head of School of Design as capable of proceeding with the proposed course of study.
The GDipDI requires 120 points and is a one-year full-time or up to four years part-time programme of study.
Courses are chosen in consultation with a Student Adviser and relevant academic to ensure it meets the requirements and includes any prerequisites needed for intended subsequent postgraduate study.
