The Graduate Certificate in Parliamentary Law and Practice is a professional training program specifically designed for parliamentary clerks. However, because the law and custom of parliament is of interest to persons other than clerks, such as members of parliament and students of the parliamentary process, it is proposed that it be open to any person with undergraduate or post graduate qualifications in law or politics.
- Provide professional training for parliamentary officers in the law, custom, practices and procedures of parliament and other related public law topics
- Provide an in depth understanding of the law, custom, practices and procedures of parliament and other related public law topics for persons working with parliament and for students of the parliamentary process.
- Provide training in writing professional and academic papers of a publishable standard.
Parliamentary officer, politician and member of parliament, political adviser and public servant.
Fees & scholarships
Commonwealth supported places (CSP)
Domestic undergraduate students may be eligible for a Commonwealth supported place in this course. If you are offered a Commonwealth supported place, your fees are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government, and you will only be required to pay the student contribution amount for each unit.
You may be able to defer payment of the student contribution amount by accessing a HECS-HELP loan from the Government. This means you can pay your tuition fees later once you start earning above a specific threshold. For more information, please refer to the Study Assist website.
The student contribution amount for each unit of study is based on its discipline area. Student contribution amounts are charged for each unit of study, this means that amounts will depend on which units you choose. Find out more about student contribution amounts.
