Description

Our Copyright PG Diploma is structured into three modules of 13 units. Each unit comes in the form of hard copy print and as a pdf file via the programme website. The units are designed to be largely self-contained, but recommended and further reading will be suggested. A unit will comprise text, copies of relevant Regulations, Commission Decisions and Notices, Judgments of the General Court and the Court of Justice of the European Union, practical examples, questions and model answers to test your knowledge as you progress.

On the programme website you can view and listen to seminar recordings and access further learning resources to support you in your studies. This website also offers students the opportunity to interact with each other and to post questions for the module leader.

The UK, EU & US Copyright Law MA is only open to students who have successfully completed the UK, US & Copyright Law Postgraduate Diploma.

Course format and assessment

This is a distance learning course taught via course-specific printed matter which is despatched from October to March at fortnightly intervals. The PgDip also features three intensive residential weekend seminars (equivalent to 48 hours of contact time) at which programme leaders will lecture and organise group work where appropriate. You are expected to engage in 220 hours of self-study and will be assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations; 55 per cent of the course is assessed by examination and 45 per cent is assessed by coursework.

The follow-up MA is open to students who complete the Diploma. It involves the research for and writing of a 12000 -15000 dissertation under supervision. You are expected to spend at least 110 hours engaged in self-directed study. You are assessed exclusively by marking of your dissertation.
