really struggling to decide which one of these diplomas is the best option. I have searched and read through these forums and there is plenty of information regarding the Birbeck Diploma, and how it is a respected qualification for entry onto Msc programs from top universities.
However, I'm really writing here to find out more about the UoL external system diploma. Is there anyone here who has undertaken this program and can vouch that it is indeed a worthwhile program that provides entry onto Msc Economics programs from good universities?
Or if anyone can say whether it is as respected as the Birkbeck option?
I will be studying via distance learning whatever option I choose. LSE provides academic guidance for the UoL program so this makes me think that is should be a good quality and well-respected program. It is also considerably cheaper than the Birkbeck option.
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
