Course summary

Overview

The Brunel Intellectual Property Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) is a unique, part-time programme with two separate routes designed for trainee patent attorneys with STEM degrees or for trainee trade mark attorneys. It is also suitable for people wishing to pursue a more general career in intellectual property law and practice.

The PGCert is accredited with IPREG and provides two separate routes of Foundation Level Qualification (Patents) and a Foundation Level Qualification (Trade Marks). Candidates may undertake either one or the other as part of the PgCert programme or combine the two FLQs in Patents and Trade Marks as part of an LLM in Intellectual Property.

In addition, Intellectual Property PgCert alumni have the option to upgrade to an LLM in Intellectual Property should they choose to re-enrol as returning students within the first five years after their graduation from Brunel.

You will get a comprehensive overview of the theoretical, practical and management aspects of intellectual property, at both national and international levels, with a solid grounding in:

  • the basic rules and principles of intellectual property law as well as the nature and scope of these rights
  • the procedures for the granting and recognition of these rights
  • the mechanisms for the enforcement of these rights
  • patents, copyrights, trademarks and contract resolution

Careers and your future

You will leave Brunel with a firm grounding in Intellectual Property Law. After you graduate you will be well equipped to get into the specialist area of Intellectual Property as a practitioner or adviser at national or international level or as a lawyer, patent or trademark attorney, IP portfolio manager, IP examiner, or IP paralegal.
