Regulatory Affairs

Theoretical and practical aspects

From molecule to marketing authorisation and maintenance

Our regulatory affairs courses provide you with up-to-date, in-depth knowledge of the most important theoretical and practical aspects of regulatory issues related to pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products. You can take individual courses or participate in a flexible, part-time postgraduate programme.  With the postgraduate programme, you will gain an understanding of the entire ‘regulatory affairs platform’ of the medicinal product lifecycle – from molecule to marketing authorisation and maintenance.

Focused courses

Individual regulatory affairs courses focus on the European Regulatory Affairs environment, but also touch on the US and other relevant countries within the ICH. We also offer specific courses on the regulatory affairs environment in the US, Japan, major markets outside the ICH (such as BRIC and MENA countries), medical devices and veterinary regulatory affairs in the EU.


Our diploma modules require a minimum of 2 years of experience in regulatory affairs or another relevant area, or experience in the pharmaceutical/biological area that qualifies you to benefit from the training. We consider applicants with less than two years of experience on a case-by-case basis.

What is Regulatory Affairs?

Regulatory Affairs (RA) is an independent function in most life science companies. RA ensures regulatory approval of a medicinal product, including dialogue with authorities from the early development phase to approval, further product development, and maintenance.

RA collaborates across disciplines with colleagues from Research and Development, Product Development and Supply, Clinical Development, Medical Affairs, Patents and Trademarks, Market Access, and Marketing and Sales. An RA manager is a strategic advisor and must understand and interpret authority requirements as well as understand the data generated in clinical development. An RA professional typically comes from a healthcare scientific background.

RA is gaining increasing strategic importance, as new and stricter pharmaceutical regulation is continually implemented. Therefore, employees with a good understanding of the activities and processes associated with bringing medicines on the market are sought-after.
