    My company put me on a postgrad diploma which i've completed but i do not have an undergraduate degree.

    What would be my options from here? Could i enter any graduate programmes? When a job spec says degree or equivalent could i include this in here?

    Obviously I know that having an undergraduate degree AND a postgrad diploma would of been preferred, i'm just curious as to what weight it holds on its own.

    Probably not a lot. But if you are staying in the same industry then combined with professional experience it may hold more value. There's probably no set answer to this, you will have to try employers are see. But by and large a PG Diploma is a failed Masters, or a short term course that might be at about 3rd year undergrad level, but lacks either the breadth of a full undergrad or the depth of a full Masters.

    Thanks for your help - guess your right about not knowing until you speak to employers.
