I understand that a dissertation is worth 60credits which is one third of a whole masters degree which is technically a pgcert.

I know its possible to get a pgcert from doing the first 60credits of a masters degree but is it possible to get one from just doing the dissertation?

The reason I ask is because I like doing dissertations and I want to teach in FE and to broaden the subjects I cam teach I'd like to see if I could be (for example) pgcert sociology or pgcert history or whatever. I figure this would also allow me to embrace the pleasure of study without the full masters price tag.

I'm hoping that also the self study nature of a masters dissertation (currently doing my second) would provide me to study with a uni even if I'm not local to it.

Anyone able to shed any light on this?
