CEIPI offers an accelerated course of tuition which meets a double requirement: providing alternate theoretical and practical tuition for persons who have proved themselves in the industrial property profession.

The program is identical to that of the long tuition course.


This course comprises two separate modules which are independent of one another:

Each module runs for one academic year ( September to June ) and includes eight weeks training for the " Patents " module and six weeks training for the " Trademarks and industrial Designs " module.

It is essential that the classes provided by CEIPI, which constitute a sandwich training course, are backed up by adequate professional practice. In view of the heavy work-load that this represents, it is not possible to register for the " Patents " and " Trademarks and Industrial designs " modules in the same year. In any case, there may be some overlapping weeks.

Students who pass the " Patents " and " Trademarks and industrial designs " examinations are awarded the Diploma in International Industrial Studies.

Note that most of the courses are in french, except for a few of them which are in english.

Accelerated tuition in "Patents": Academic year 2018-2019: Organisation of general law classes

In order to allow future students of the accelerated tuition in Patents to concentrate on general law subjects, classes concerning introduction to law, business law and the law of obligations is taught in advance.

This adjustment consists in organising a two-day seminar for each of the three subjects during the prerequisite internship year.

Enrolment to the general law classes is open.

Enrolment deadline: 1st April 2018.
