Professional development businessman

As a result of the pandemic and ensuing social distancing requirements and travel restrictions, the ANU College of Law has determined that for the first half of 2021, all Professional Development Courses will be delivered in an online mode.

Duration

4 days to 7 weeks

How to apply

Select your preferred professional development course from the Course Calendar below, then complete the online application form. Applications must be received at least 15 working days prior to the course start date.

We offer a range of short-term professional development courses to allow you to study a single subject without having to apply for a full postgraduate degree.

Short-term professional development courses enable you to update or refresh your knowledge, expand your skillset, focus on a specialised area of law relating to your current role or gain new knowledge and skills to prepare you for a new role.

Courses are taught by world-class academics and guest lecturers with real-world professional experience and delivered in an intensive format of between 4 days to 7 weeks to suit working professionals.

Tailored professional development courses can be developed and delivered in-house at your workplace upon request.
