Postgraduate Diploma in Humanities (D35) - Qualification withdrawal

The Open University will withdraw the Postgraduate Diploma in Humanities (D35) on 31 December 2022. Students who wish to claim this qualification will need to satisfy all necessary academic requirements before this date.

Why this is happening

The University is introducing new versions of the MA in History (F89) and MA in English (F88) from September 2021 as a result of an update to the structure of these qualifications, their content and their learning outcomes. As these new qualifications will now be comprised of two 90-credit modules, our postgraduate diploma (comprised of a single 120 credit module) will no longer be a relevant intermediate qualification.

Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
