Coursework and examination
Students will be required to submit three 2000-word assignments in April of the first year.
In May 2022 there will be a written examination, the format of the examination will be confirmed nearer the time. (If the examination is in the traditional format of a 3-hour in-person examination, overseas students can make arrangements to sit the examination in their country. This will require an additional fee from King's College London and the overseas venue.)
Successful candidates will obtain the Postgraduate Diploma in EU Competition Law. Results are graded into Pass (50-59%), Merit (60-69%) and Distinction (70%+).
The follow-up MA is open to students who complete the Diploma at Merit level. It involves the research for and writing of a dissertation under supervision from a King’s academic. You are expected to spend at least 110 hours engaged in self-directed study. You are assessed exclusively by your dissertation which needs to be passed with at least 50%.
Normally students are required to start with the MA programme within 2 years of finishing the PG Diploma programme, ie if you finish in academic year 2021/22, you can apply for the MA in academic years 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25.
