Update on 8-9 Dec 2011 and 9-13 Jan 2012 EQE revision courses

Due to high demand for our E5 Paper C (Opposition) EQE revision course with Julian Potter on 11-12 January 2012, we have set up a further course at the same time, E10. This will be tutored by Chris Mercer.

It means that we still have places available for all combinations of the Papers A&B, Paper C and Paper D courses which we are holding between 9-13 January 2012.

Places remain available on the E2 Introduction to Paper D course on 9 December 2011, which is designed for those also taking a 1.5 Paper D course in January 2012, but who wish to have additional teaching and practice of Paper D. The course runs from 9.30am to 5.30pm on Friday 9 December.

Our 8-9 December 2011 E1 revision course for the EQE Pre-exam has proved very popular, with only a limited number of places still available. This course will start at 10am on Thursday 8 December and finish at 4.30pm on Friday 9 December 2011.
