What is a Diploma?

Technically, a diploma is the piece of paper showing that you have earned a particular qualification. However, people also use the term “diploma” to describe the nature of a qualification.

In South Africa, diplomas are post-school qualifications that are career-orientated. This means that they generally prepare you for a specific line of work, and provide you with knowledge and skills that you can apply in practice.

A diploma usually builds on the knowledge that you have gained in a previous qualification, such as a certificate programme. Diploma courses are normally shorter than full degree programmes.

If you have no previous qualifications in project management, you might want to consider doing a certificate course first, or you could look for an entry-level diploma. You can study towards a project management diploma at a college, university, or other academic institution that offers post-school education.
