Course content

Please note: For the Postgraduate Diploma only (first year) you apply through Informa Connect who will guide you through the application process. Informa Connect delivers the Diploma programme in conjunction with King’s.

Economic evidence and analysis play a crucial role in cases brought before the European Commission, national authorities and courts. Our Economics for Competition Law is a classic distance-learning programme that brings economic theory to the practice of competition law by covering conceptual foundations as applied in the context of competition law. This programme is studied by professionals alongside full time work commitments. The estimated time commitment is 240 hours of self study plus 32 hours teaching at the weekend seminars. Further time is needed in April for the coursework and May for examination preparation. Students are expected to manage their time independently.

Please note that the optional MA (second year) is only available for application once the Postgraduate Diploma has been completed at Merit level.
