Course highlights

The Graduate Certificate in Dispute Resolution meets the needs of those in business, public service, legal, human resources and voluntary roles who seek to understand the cause and effect of conflict and the process and techniques for dispute resolution in workplace settings.

Practical program

You will study the theories and skills underpinning conflict resolution, a range of methods in dispute resolution, and mediation processes and uses.

Online convenience

Designed to deliver maximum convenience for busy professionals, this course is available for online study from anywhere in the world. Subjects are taught using blended learning techniques including online education study materials, video-captured lectures, online meetings and subject forums.

Flexible study options

This course is offered across a three-session academic year, with sessions commencing in February, July and November each year. You can choose to study just one subject in an academic session or, with approval, take up to four subjects a session.

Learn from the best in the business

As experienced conflict management and resolution practitioners, CSU academic staff deliver a degree with a strong practical focus to ensure you graduate work-ready and equipped with a competitive qualification for the global employment market.

Resolution Institute (formed by the merger of LEADR and IAMA), a recognised mediator accreditation body, regards CSU's Graduate Certificate in Dispute Resolution as meeting the necessary educational requirements for graduates to apply for Resolution Institute accreditation to the national standard.

Professional accreditation is currently being developed in Australia. There has been no one accrediting body. What has existed are separate accrediting organisations who accredit their own mediators / convenors.

The new National Accreditation Standards Government (eg Community Justice Centres, Legal Aid, Health Conciliation Registry) and private dispute resolution organisations (e.g. LEADR, ACDC, Relationships Australia) are in the process of reviewing their training and assessment in order to upgrade their mediation panel members to the new National Standard. See www.leadr.com.au/Approval standards.pdf; www.leadr.com.au/documents/Practice standards.pdf

Private organisations can now be declared Recognised Mediator Accreditation Bodies (RMABs) who will be able to monitor members, provide or attest to CPD requirements, a complaints scheme and insurance. LEADR, which is a Recognised Mediator Accreditation Body, has indicated that they recognise CSU's dispute resolution Graduate Certificate to fulfil the necessary educational requirements in order for graduates to apply to be accredited by LEADR to the National Standard.

Although being accredited to the National Standard is voluntary at the present time, it appears that in reality there will be a flow on effect with practising members being forced to meet the standards in order to be employed in the industry.

Students entering the Master of Dispute Resolution from the Graduate Diploma of Organisational Coaching and Leadership and who have completed the IECL Coach Training Program (ACTP) curriculum accredited by the International Coach Federation (USA) may apply for ICF accreditation.

International students

Gain an internationally recognised qualification with CSU at one of our vibrant regional campuses, or study online from the comfort of your own home - anywhere in the world!

You can also study accounting, business and information technology courses at a CSU Study Centre in Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.

Browse through the tabs below for more information or visit our International website to discover more about an Australian university experience like no other.

Please note: if you choose to study online with CSU, the course study mode will not meet necessary requirements for granting Australian student visas.

There are minimum Academic and English Language requirements for admission to CSU courses. These requirements ensure that our students have the best chance for success. Minimum requirements can vary from country to country, so please take some time to review our entry requirements  before starting your application. If you cannot find the requirements for your country please contact us.

At CSU, we understand that you are making a financial investment in your future and we want to make sure that you receive the best value for money for your education. That’s why our students enjoy more affordable course tuition fees than other Australian universities, while still receiving a high standard of education.

Tuition fees are set for the duration of your course and don’t go up each year.

CSU Alumni receive a discount on fee-paying postgraduate courses – so if you study your bachelor’s degree with us, and decide to continue your studies at CSU, you could save 10 per cent off your postgraduate tuition.

Please note: whether you study on campus or online, textbooks and other items that you may be required to purchase during your study are not included in the tuition fees.

More information on tuition and other fees.

More information on fees for on-campus study in Australia.

Aside from course tuition fees, all students who choose to study on campus incur other fees such as accommodation, Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF), Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) and other living expenses.

If you choose to study online, some subjects may require you to attend compulsory residential schools in Australia. Residential schools are held on campus in Australia for up to five days during certain sessions.

Please check the residential schools tab in the Course highlights section above (or your offer of admission if your application is successful) for more information on which subjects may have a residential school component.

Online courses for international students do not meet the requirement for an Australian Student Visa, therefore you will need to check that you can obtain an appropriate visa for any residential school session. For more information about visas, visit the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Border Protection. More information about residential schools can be found on our Future Students Hub.

CSU campuses offer a uniquely Australian living experience. Most of our campuses have accommodation on-site with many of the buildings nestled among gum trees with native wildlife like kangaroos and kookaburras sharing the space. Off-campus accommodation options can also be arranged.

Few universities in Australia can match the range of accommodation available at CSU’s campuses. Campus life offers all the facilities of a small village with community spirit, helping you to meet lots of new friends while living in a safe and secure environment.

Find out more about CSU’s accommodation options.

Whether you choose to study online or on campus, our international support services can make all the difference. From managing visa requirements to study support, and career advice, we’ve got you covered and our friendly staff will help make your university experience one you will never forget.

At CSU, we work with trained international recruitment agents in more than 40 countries to help you find the course and study option that is right for you. Our agents can assist you to apply for study either on campus in Australia or online. Depending on your country of citizenship you may be required to apply to CSU via an agent. Visit our International agents page for more information.
