Q: What is the difference between a Certificate and a Diploma course?

The Diploma is a higher and more advanced qualification than a Certificate. As a similar example, a Master’s Degree is higher and more advanced than a Bachelor’s Degree.


You can study for a Certificate then upgrade to a Diploma, but you will need to pay the full Diploma fee to upgrade. For this reason, we suggest directly enrolling in the Diploma if you want a higher qualification.


The Diploma program usually has additional assessments in the form of written assignments that allows you to practice the content that you have learned.
