Higher Diploma (Bridge to MA)
> Course Overview

The minimum academic qualification to enter the IOU Higher Diploma program is a Bachelor’s degree (in any field).

There are three options for graduates of BMAIS program:
- Students are automatically eligible for the IOU MAIS degree program the following semester.
- Students may join the MAIS degree program later if they choose to take some time off.
- Students may follow MAIS program with any other institution of their choice.
