Who is this for?

This interactive, CPD accredited e-learning tool helps students and lecturers understand intellectual property rights i.e. trade marks, patents, copyright and designs and uses case studies to show why intellectual property is important.

What's available?

IP Tutor provides four tailored learning pathways, each adapted to suit the needs of different areas of study: creative; science, technology, engineering, maths (STEM); law, business and accounting; and humanities, including creative writing.

Modules tailored to your course


Choose the sector module that best describes your course. This will ensure you get the most out of the training.

Creative

Whether you're an artist or author, designer or developer, the IP Tutor helps you understand how to ensure your creative work is protected. Learn about key IP rights including design rights and automatic protection like copyright and how they apply to commercial activities like advertising and using photography.

START TRAINING

Humanities

Every effort a business makes to provide the best goods and services, and all the work done to promote the brand, is reflected in the trade mark used. So, whatever you do in your career, the name you do it under could be very important to you.

START TRAINING

Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths

Many new inventions involve using known things, but to be worthy of a patent the invention must be more than just a simple adaption or combination of existing products which would produce an obvious result. There has to be an inventive step over what is already known.

START TRAINING

Business, Law & Accounting

Your ideas are important. They are your personal stamp on the world around you. It’s therefore very important to understand who actually owns and controls those ideas, because believe it or not, it might not be you.
