Student Profile(s)

Lucy Maguire - Dublin, Ireland (Diploma in Conflict and Dispute Resolution Studies 2018/2019)

I had completed a Certificate in Mediation and wished to study Conflict and Alternative Dispute Resolution strategies further. Having explored several courses, this one offered the most interesting and wide-ranging study of this area.

After considering other options, I felt that this course offered me a deep understanding of the causes and nature of conflict, the various conflict resolution processes available and how to apply them in different contexts.

I could not recommend Trinity and this particular course highly enough. Although it seemed very daunting at first as one of the oldest on the Campus, I’m sure, the level of attention and care from the Faculty and the Library all meant it was a very rewarding experience.
