Goodbye EQE Pre-Exam, Welcome Module F

When and where

Date and time

Start: Tuesday 12 March 2024, 12:30 PM

End: Tuesday 12 March 2024, 01:30 PM

Event Overview

The last EQE Pre-Exam will be held in March 2024 and the first module of the new EQE will be held in 2025. Candidates are eligible to sit module F after just one year of training and thus, trainee patent attorneys who have entered the profession recently should consider enrolling for the new module now.

The webinar will explore the available details for the new module F. We will compare module F with the existing Pre-Exam and consider how preparations for the Pre-Exam may be adapted for module F.  Since module F is the first stepping stone in the new EQE pathway, we will also briefly introduce the subsequent modules which will roll out from 2026 onwards.

This webinar is intended for both trainees and their trainers.
