In addition, epi Students

epi Students' forum

In this forum, epi Students have the opportunity to ask questions and to discuss topics related to the European Qualifying Examination (EQE) at any time. Posting questions and answers in the forum is, by default, anonymous. epi Students are automatically enrolled and access to the forum is free of charge. Posts will be answered by an epi Tutor and will be available for all to see.

EQE Online Workshops

The EQE Online Workshops are especially designed for EQE candidates who have passed the Pre-Examination and are now preparing for the main EQE. Each online workshop comprises between 6 to 8 short online sessions in which participants will work in small groups on real examples of practical and strategic aspects of the examination paper in question. Workshops can be booked per paper.

Session Calendar

All sessions will be held from 16:00 to 18:00 CEST (and then CET after the end of October) on Monday and Thursday.

Paper A:
20 June to 7 July 2022

Paper B:
13 June to 30 June 2022

Further EQE online workshops will be offered in autumn 2022. The schedule can be found on epi website.

epi Tutorials

The most individually tailored training offering is epi Tutorials. Candidates can privately write answer scripts for one or more of the past EQE papers including mock papers January 2021 and December 2021 (pre- or main examination). Experienced epi Tutors will then review the answer scripts and provide personal feedback via videoconference or e-mail.
Due dates and feedback sessions are individually organised between the tutee and tutor. The tutorial fee (400€ per paper) covers a maximum of two different years. epi Students enjoy a 50% discount.

epi Tutor consultation hour exclusive for epi Students

Each week, an experienced epi Tutor will be available for an hour to answer questions you may have relating to each one of the exam papers starting with the Paper D (first week) with the other papers following in each of the next four weeks. The cycle of sessions will then repeat in 5 week blocks.

Session Calendar

All sessions will be held from 16:00 to 17:00, CEST (and then CET after the end of October).
