How will I study?

The units take the form of a bound document that also includes further reading suggestions; copies of relevant regulations; practical examples; questions and model answers.

You will be taught mostly online through King’s E-learning and Teaching Service (KEATS) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Students participate in online tutorials and discussion groups, interacting with expert tutors and their fellow students. All course materials will be posted on here as well.

You are eligible to attend 3 weekend seminars in London.

How will I receive the materials?

  • Materials will be sent by post (air courier overseas). 
  • The materials are quite bulky and it is important to provide a mailing address where your materials can be safely delivered (please note that this cannot be a PO Box address). 
  • The programme units will also be available as PDF documents on the programme website.

How long will I spend studying each unit?

  • The length of time needed to study a unit will vary with your experience and the complexity of the unit being studied. 
  • It is anticipated that each unit will require a student to spend approximately twenty hours studying, depending on the student’s experience, plus further study time for questions and reading and completion of the assignments. 
  • Students who enter this programme need to be aware of the commitment required to study this challenging and rewarding programme.

Are there any tutorial seminars?

  • All students will be eligible to attend three optional weekend seminars. Normally held in November 2022, February 2023 and March 2023 (exact dates will be confirmed as soon as possible after enrolment).
  • The weekend seminars will be held in Central London.
  • Authors will lecture and revise study material during two full days of teaching. 
  • Seminars are recorded to view for those students who cannot attend the seminars. 
  • It is strongly recommended that students benefit from these intensive revision sessions. (The format of the seminars will depend on social distancing measures at the time).
  • The seminars are not compulsory but are very beneficial and provide an excellent opportunity to meet fellow students, the programme director and programme authors.

How will I be assessed?

Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations. Forms of assessment typically include essays and examinations.  Students who have achieved the Economics for Competition Law Postgraduate Diploma at merit level or above may apply direct to King's for a second year where a 60 credit dissertation is written under supervision to gain an MA.
