Program

CEIPI offers a " long " tuition, which runs for the approximate duration of an academic year; it is divided into autonomous courses: mid-September/February and early February/mid-May.

  • A " Patents " course, offered during the first semester of the academic year, leading to the International Industrial Studies Diploma in " Patents ".
  •  A " Trademarks and designs " course, offered during the second semester of the academic year, leading to the International Industrial studies Diploma in " trademarks and industrial designs ".

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

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

CEIPI also offers a program in commun with the Technical University of Dresden, Law Faculty, in order to obtain the LL.M in Intellectual Property. Click here for further information concerning this diploma.

The complete full year programme « Patents » and « Trade Marks, and Designs » (two semesters) could count towards a six month reduction of the necessary professional experience required to prepare for the European Qualifying Examination.
