Course content

The Global Competition and Consumer Law program is one of only a handful of comprehensive programs in competition and consumer law in the world, and ensures you will be at the forefront of the unique challenges and opportunities of this global field, with regimes now in more than 130 countries.

One of the most distinctive aspects of this program is the calibre of its instructors. Directed by Professor Caron Beaton-Wells of the Melbourne Law School, *ranked 7th in the world, and the No. 1 law school in the Asia-Pacific, the program is delivered by world-leading experts in the field. You will learn from the likes of the former Chairman of the US Federal Trade Commission, former head of the UNCTAD Competition and Consumer Policies Branch and current Chairman of the OECD Competition Committee, amongst many others who have held or hold leadership roles in private practice, competition and consumer authorities, intergovernmental organisations, and adjudicatory bodies, in the competition and consumer law field.

Fees and funding

A specific application is not required for a scholarship and all successful applicants will be reviewed for scholarship eligibility.

There are ten scholarships available per intake (i.e. Term 1 and Term 3) for the LLM (Global Competition and Consumer Law) and Master of Global Competition and Consumer Law in 2018.

These scholarships will be awarded to students from emerging and developing economies. Countries qualifying as emerging or developing economies are determined according to the International Monetary Fund and the United Nations and these countries are listed here. Eligibility is determined based on:

  • Proof of citizenship of one of the countries that are classified as qualifying as emerging or developing economies;
  • Evidence that applicants have lived in their country of citizenship or another emerging or developing country for at least 12 months in the last two-year period.

Scholarships will be awarded for each intake based on application dates. Therefore, the ten scholarships made available per intake will be awarded according to the order of application dates. If an eligible applicant does not receive a scholarship for his/her chosen intake (due to the ten scholarships already being awarded), the applicant is able to apply for a scholarship in the next intake.

By being awarded a scholarship, recipients or the sponsoring employer will only have to pay 50 per cent of the total course fee.

Early application pricing is not available to students who receive scholarships.

Scholarship holders are not able to defer the commencement of the course.
