Program overview

There is virtually no area of world politics in which international law does not play a role and international law cannot be fully understood without an appreciation of the political context in which it operates.

The Graduate Diploma of International Law and International Relations is offered in partnership with UNSW Law and the School of Social Sciences and International Studies in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This program provides those with an interest in careers in international law and international relations a keen understanding of the problems, conduct, overlap and conflicts between international law and politics, and the areas of interaction.

Program structure

Students are required to complete two compulsory courses (12uoc) in their first year of study, then choose half of their elective courses from the Law courses offered and half from the International Relations and Politics courses offered by the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences. Core courses: Principles of International law (6uoc) and The Politics of International law (6uoc).
