Working language(s)



The online training course for the EQE pre-examination paper is a six-month course which offers a blended e-learning experience, including:

There are around 800 pages of training materials altogether, plus quizzes and virtual classroom sessions on a number of different topic areas.

Course participants will have access to experienced epi tutors from around Europe, who will be available via a discussion forum to answer exam-related queries. You will also be able to interact with the tutors via virtual classrooms, which will normally take place on two or three Thursdays per month, at 16.00 hrs CET. Each classroom lasts between 1 and 1½ hours. They are recorded and uploaded to the course so that participants can watch them at any time.

Participants will be able to access the course from the beginning of September 2021 onwards. We recommend that you start the course at that point, as the six-month schedule is designed to make sure that you are well-prepared by the time the pre-examination paper is held. You may, of course, register at any time up to and including the close of registration on 24 January 2022.

If you register in advance of the course, you will receive your login details upon registration.

If you register after the course has started, your login details will be sent to you as soon as possible.

The training materials from the course will be available online up to and including 31 March 2022.

Online training



The online course for candidates preparing for the EQE pre-examination paper is organised by the European Patent Academy, while the paper itself is set and marked under the co-ordination of the EQE Secretariat. The Academy and the Secretariat work independently from one another, and the Academy has no access to specific information concerning future EQE papers. While the Academy endeavours to prepare the course materials and exercises on the basis of previous papers, no guarantee can be made that these materials and exercises will fully reflect the actual paper on the day of the exam.
