Mediation and Conflict Resolution

University of Strathclyde


Mediation is fast becoming a core skill. Professionals in business, public bodies and the law are increasingly expected to resolve disputes without the delay and expense of litigation.

This Scottish Mediation Register-accredited programme is the only course of its kind in the UK. It's rigorous and multidisciplinary, combining both theoretical and practical elements. You'll be exposed you to a wide range of approaches as well as being taught by experts from across the UK.

You’ll enhance your confidence in dealing with interpersonal and organisational conflict while developing your communication and problem-solving skills. You'll also have opportunities to acquire the skills of a mediator through simulations and case studies as well as gaining practical experience through our Mediation Clinic.

You can exit at the end of 9 months with PgDip Mediation and Conflict Resolution.
