Australian National University
The Graduate Certificate of Law offered by the ANU College of Law is the best way to start your postgraduate legal studies – whether you are a non-law graduate or a law graduate from an overseas university. The program is designed to be a standalone qualification or provide an entry qualification to the Master of Laws or Master of Juris Doctor.
The program is optional for all law graduates from overseas universities who may be seeking to increase their understanding of Australian law or law and legal institutions. The program provides a flexible structure and includes a wide range of elective courses. All courses are taught by staff with international research reputations and draw upon the University’s strategic location in the national capital. The Graduate Certificate also includes a compulsory 6-unit course on law and legal institutions which provides an important foundation for students’ legal studies.
Unless otherwise indicated, ANU will accept all Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications or international equivalents that meet or exceed the published admission requirements of our programs, provided all other admission requirements are also met. Where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will base assessment on the qualification that best meets the admission requirements for the program.
ANU uses a 7-point grade point average (GPA) scale. All qualifications submitted for admission at ANU will be converted to this common scale, which will determine if an applicant meets our published admission requirements. Find out how a 7-point GPA is calculated for Australian universities.
Unless otherwise indicated, where an applicant has more than one completed tertiary qualification, ANU will calculate the GPA for each qualification separately. ANU will base assessment on the best GPA of all completed tertiary qualifications that are eligible to be considered.
