I've a friend who's just been accepted onto this course. He graduated with a high 2:2 and said he was planning on doing a masters. A few Qs for you:

a. What, exactly, does a diploma of this sort entail? He mentioned something about it being the first year of an undergrad management course.

b. How did he get into Cams with a 2:2? He graduated from Manchester with a degree in Economics.

c. What is the point of this diploma? Can he join the MPhil at a later stage (I find this hard to believe considering Cambridge wants a first for this course I think).

It's not that I disbelieve him, it's just I don't see why he'd want to do a diploma and I'm highly surprised he was admitted with a 2:2. :confused:

Material-wise I guess it probably is like a first year management course. However, the sophistication of your writing and analysis should correspond to a final year undergraduate rather than a first year.

b. How did he get into Cams with a 2:2? He graduated from Manchester with a degree in Economics.
Cambridge don't give this course a Masters title which is why your friends 2.2 doesn't matter.

c. What is the point of this diploma? Can he join the MPhil at a later stage (I find this hard to believe considering Cambridge wants a first for this course I think).
A conversion course for students in non-business subjects such as Medicine or Engineering. A course for visiting overseas students. A course for people who didn't do too well with their first degree.

Your friend can apply for the MPhil programme but he will probably need a First Class mark for the Diploma.
