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 deliver this programme in conjunction with King's.

Our distance-learning UK, EU & US Copyright Law course will introduce you to the main International Copyright Conventions. It deals with a wide range of rights (e.g. literary, dramatic, artistic works) as well as covering infringement and remedies and looks at the challenges presented by international communication through satellite and the internet. 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.
