Special course paper C


This course is exclusively intended for candidates who have failed Part C (Opposition) of the European qualifying examination. The course is motivated by the realisation that many candidates are insufficiently prepared, lacking the knowledge and skills that this paper demands.

The course aims are to make candidates aware of the preparations, knowledge and skills they really need in order to pass the paper, and to help them attain the required level.

The course will examine the principles behind the paper and the legal, technical and practical problems it has posed in the past. It will also introduce candidates to useful examination techniques.

Work will be done in small groups, to ensure proper dialogue between tutor and participant. Participants must have a good command of an EPO official language (English, French or German) as the course takes place in these three languages. If fewer than ten people enrol for one of these languages, the course is likely to be held in English.

To optimise programme organisation, participants when enrolling are asked to include a copy of at least one Paper C that they have failed, preferably the paper of the year before. This will make it possible to define general problem areas and offer suitable solutions. Protection of personal data is guaranteed.

The Special C course takes place in Strasbourg on the following dates:

30th November and 1st December, 2018


Please note that early enrolment is advisable.

Applications to CEIPI will be treated on a first come, first served basis. If the course is oversubscribed, names will be put on a waiting list.

Deadline for enrolments: 18th October 2018.
