Diploma in Higher Education (DHE)

A Diploma in Higher Education (DHE) is a part time programme of short courses, totalling 240 credits, which leads to a University undergraduate qualification. A Diploma follows on from completion of a Certificate of Higher Education, with a further 120 credits taken to reach the total of 240. Timescales for completion of the CHEs are between 2 and 5 years, so there is plenty of time to work your way through the appropriate courses for your study area.

We currently only offer a Diploma in Higher Education in Field and Conservation Ecology.
