  • Lolade

    This is a very important question to me! I am a graduate of covenant’s BSc programme in Architecture but I want to further my studies in International Relations (my original interest) which is totally unrelated. I was advised to do a pgd programme for this change of discipline. So my question is, is it possible to apply for the pgd in inter. rel. without a BSc or with a completely unrelated BSc like Architecture?

    1. Yes, it is possible Lolade!
