This aim of this degree programme is to specifically teach students to become professionals who are experts in the resolution of family conflict, mediators and family coaches. The purpose of this is to provide knowledge, tools and specific competences so they can undertake their allocated tasks.

According to statistics from the Institute of Family Policies, conflict in broken families is progressively increasing, as is the number of divorces.

The lack of professionals specialised in this area who can help to resolve conflicts in crisis situations of all kinds and who can also mediate in irreversible situations of family breakdown is notorious. However it is necessary to carry out positive mediation in an attempt to prevent any type of conflict and to create tools for communication and to help resolve future conflict.

We have lecturers and professors with both teaching and research experience, and some staff members from the professional field of mediation.

Why this course?

This postgraduate programme in mediation and conflict resolution, now in its fifth year, provides a thorough, practical and exciting introduction to this developing area.

Still the only course of its kind in the UK, the programme is rigorous and multi-disciplinary, exposing you to a wide range of approaches as well as being taught by experts from across the UK.

The skills of conflict resolution are crucial in contemporary life. Professionals in business, public bodies and the law are increasingly expected to act in a collaborative way and to resolve disputes without the delay and expense of litigation. Mediation is fast becoming a core skill.

In response to popular demand, from 2014/15 you can graduate with either an LLM or MSc. Students whose dissertations deal with significant legal or justice questions receive recognition via an LLM. Those who take a social science or empirical approach will graduate with an MSc. This division reflects the range of students taking the course, who include:
- lawyers
- human resource professionals
- recent graduates of all disciplines
- managers
- teachers
- social workers
- coaches, as well as experienced mediators seeking a more academic grounding for their work

The course combines theoretical and practical elements. It's recently been accredited by the Scottish Mediation Network.

You’ll enhance your confidence in dealing with interpersonal and organisational conflict while developing your communication and problem-solving skills. You can also gain practical experience through our Mediation Clinic.

Successful completion of the course will provide you with:
- specialised knowledge and practical mediation and negotiation skills
- potential career advancement
- a further academic qualification as tangible evidence of expertise
- a rigorous, multi-disciplinary perspective on conflict
- opportunities for further research

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/mediationconflictresolution/

You’ll study

The course can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis via a combination of evening and weekend classes, distance learning and personal study.

On a full-time basis, the LLM/MSc requires you to complete three modules in each of two semesters followed by a dissertation in a chosen research topic. Part-time students would normally undertake three modules per year.

As well as a rigorous theoretical grounding in the principles of mediation and conflict resolution, the course provides opportunities for you to acquire the skills of a mediator through simulations and case studies.

Mediation clinic

A unique aspect of studying for this qualification is that, as a student on the course, you can become a member of the Mediation Clinic. This is a student-led mediation service for the Greater Glasgow area.

The clinic exists to help people resolve disputes without going to court or tribunal. Since February 2014, it's been providing an in-court mediation service for small claims party litigants at Glasgow Sheriff Court. Each mediation is conducted by a lead mediator and student mediator.

Facilities

Our library has a wide range of law reports, legislation, serials and monographs. It also has duplicate sets of key law report series, houses extensive collections in government publications and other related areas.

You’ll have access to a wide range of electronic information sources which can be accessed from home, including all the major legal databases.

Course awards

Graduates at Certificate, Diploma or Masters level all fulfil the training requirements for the Scottish Mediation Register.

Pre-Masters Preparation Course

The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at the University of Strathclyde. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.

Careers

Many students take their qualification into their existing professions, for example law, human resources, construction, education, management, social work and trade unions. A number of large law firms now have dispute resolution departments. Legal practitioners find the qualification a useful addition to their CV. HR managers who have taken the course report regular use of their mediation skills. Managers and social workers say they use them daily.

Former students are now working in community, homelessness and family mediation. Others have integrated mediation into their business offering.

The placement component of the program typically takes place in the third semester after completion of the academic portion.

The program is approved by the ADR Institute of Ontario, Inc. (ADRIO). Graduates may wish to gain membership in ADRIO by completing the necessary application form and paying the appropriate fee directly to the institute.
