EQE Exam and Pre-exam courses

EQE exam and pre-exam revision courses

We offer revision courses for candidates preparing for the February-March 2018 European Qualifying Examinations (EQE) for Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office. We are holding one day Introduction to Paper C and Introduction to Paper D courses on 2 and 3 November 2017 and our main suite of Papers A&B, C and D courses in Milton Keynes between 27 November and 1 December 2017. We have a 1.8 day course for the Pre-Exam on 4-5 December 2017.

The Introduction to Paper C and Introduction to Paper D are recommended to be taken in combination with one of the 1.5 day Paper C and Paper D courses in later November, being intended for those taking Paper C and/or Paper for the first time. They will enable those taking Paper C to be able to get much more out of the 1.5 day course by being familiar with how to approach a Paper C past paper and and those taking Paper D to have more practice of Part 2 longer questions.

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 Introduction course, 2.5 days of training. Our EQE 2018 course leaflet contains a course calendar and more information. You can book online or can book by post using our EQE 2018 booking form.

Our 27 November – 1 December and 4-5 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.
