EQE Exam and Pre-exam courses

EQE exam and pre-exam revision courses

We offer revision courses for candidates preparing for the March 2017 European Qualifying Examinations (EQE) for Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office. We are holding our main suite of Papers A&B, C and D courses in Milton Keynes between 28 November and 2 December 2016. We have a 1.8 day course for the Pre-Exam on 5-6 December 2016.

While our November-December 2016 courses are now full, we have places available on our 1 day ‘booster courses‘ for Papers D and C on 26 and 27 January 2017: eight weeks after the main courses. They are a recommended addition to the courses in December and include practice and feedback on a paper set ahead of the course, as well as the opportunity to review and discuss areas where you need strengthening.

All courses are supported by access to our online Moodle discussion and resources forum.

Our courses focus on methods and techniques for exam success, with advice from the tutors and feedback on exam questions you will practice. We have achieved excellent success rates over recent years.

Our courses can be taken on a single or linked modular basis to fit your needs. For Papers C and D, you can have 1.5 or, with the booster course, 2.5 days of training. Our EQE 2017 course leaflet contains a course calendar and more information. You can book online or can book by post using our EQE 2017 booking form.

Our 28 November – 2 December and 5-6 December courses are residential, with accommodation and meals included in the fee. But if accommodation is not required then the fee is reduced by £95+VAT.
