The Graduate Diploma (Global Competition and Consumer Law) is a highly innovative and advanced international course that responds to the proliferation of competition and consumer policies and laws, and their increasingly active enforcement, around the world. Competition policy and law are a crucial means of driving economic growth, higher living standards and productivity at national and global levels.
This course provides interdisciplinary knowledge and skills through subjects that grapple with the legal, regulatory, economic, political, institutional and social facets of competition policy, law and enforcement. The course focuses substantively on the policies, laws and enforcement experiences of the major jurisdictions in this field, the United States and European Union, but also draws on other jurisdictions - from the Asia Pacific region particularly (including Australia). Subjects have been developed and are taught by leading experts, each bringing outstanding pedagogical skills, substantive knowledge and practical skill and experience to instruction in the course.
The course provides students with advanced specialised expertise and skills to tackle the complex challenges raised by the design and application of competition systems. It is designed for professionals in the private and public sectors who are aspiring to build or advance a career in this field.
It can be completed either wholly online or through a combination of wholly online and wholly on-campus subjects. Using a combination of face-to-face teaching in small class sizes and sophisticated interactive technology, the course facilitates close rich engagement with globally-renown experts and a diverse network of like-minded peers.
The course requires completion of 50 credit points in total. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma have the option of transferring to the LLM (Global Competition and Consumer Law), for law graduates, or Master of Global Competition and Consumer Law, for non-law graduates, which will involve completion of a further 50 credit points. Credit will be given towards these masters degrees for the credit points completed in the Graduate Diploma.
As most students in this course will be full-time professionals, enrolment is on a part-time basis for most students. On this basis, the course will typically be completed in two years. However, students will be permitted to elect to undertake an increased study load during their course if their circumstances allow.
