- When do the participants receive their diplomas?
Participants, who have successfully graduated from the Program (presence at all of the modules is obligatory) usually get their diplomas only in October of the year they finished their studies in (in this case – in October 2019). The reason for the delay is that the grades have to be checked and approved by the Diploma’s External Assessment Committee (comprising academic staff from Cambridge).23
