Program overview

The Graduate Diploma in Dispute Resolution offers students the opportunity of advanced graduate study without undertaking a full Master of Dispute Resolution degree.

There is no difference between the Graduate Diploma and the Master of Dispute Resolution in terms of the content and depth with which particular courses are studied – the Graduate Diploma merely requires completion of fewer courses.

Program structure

Students must successfully complete a total of 12 uoc in the core courses Dispute Resolution and Principled Negotiation. Students then choose a total of 24 uoc (4 courses) from the relevant elective courses.
