Hi there!

A postgraduate diploma is a shorter qualification than a masters degree, although at the same academic level. Whereas a masters degree is made up of 180 credits (taken from exams, assignments, and so on), a postgraduate diploma is 120 credits.

This information can be found here - https://www.postgrad.com/advice/postgraduate_diploma/

Hope this helps!

As far as your job prospects are concerned, yes. But I'd say the prospects also depend on the course that you do.

Your terms need to be clearer.

A Postgraduate Diploma is a lower qualification than a Masters degree.

A Postgraduate degree is a more generic term for any Masters degree (MPhil, MSt, MSc, MBA etc) or a PhD/DPhil.

A postgraduate diploma and a Masters are both postgraduate degrees

However, a postgradate diploma is equal to about 2/3 of a Masters, so whilst they're equivalent types of degrees, they don't hold the same weight

This is not quite right. A diploma is specifically not a degree, it's a diploma. They are both postgraduate study, but the first level is a postgraduate certificate, about 1/3 of a Masters, then comes a Diploma, about 2/3 of a Masters as you say, but a degree is a degree.

The postgraduate diploma is 120 credits (usually 2 taught semesters in length), and the postgraduate degree is 180 credits and typically takes a full academic or calendar year. The latter also includes a research project/dissertation in addition to the 2 taught semesters of the diploma.
