    A diploma is kinda cheaper...less intensive but I dont think that there is much job prospects after it..Indeed the admission's lady said that it was just a stepping stone for people who wanted to get onto a masters!!

    A master is really intensive (or so I hear) and more expensive..but the prospects are much better..

    I dont really have that much money for a masters... and If I did go for it Id have to take a gap year..and Ive done so already before I started my degree

    HELP!!!

    What do you think I should do?

    Diplomas are design to allow you to move into a different subject area from your undergrad, i really dont see the point unless you are planning on doing a masters after the diploma.

    Yeah & reviresco is right also.

    Diploma is just a stepping stone in getting a 'masters' in another field other than the one you previous studied at undergraduate level

    Masters can be really expensive, especially from the top 5 institutions e.g an Msc economics & econometrics 'masters' from LSE is between the range of £15,000 - £20,000 compared to somewhere like Birmingham or something only charging just over £5,000 or even less

    So the only reason why you should do a diploma is because you want to go into another field completely different from your previous 1
