You can design your own diploma by attending individual courses in whichever order you like. To earn the Diploma in Regulatory Affairs, you must attend and pass the exams of eight courses, one of which can be from the pharmacovigilance programme. Our courses offer a mixture of learning activities including classroom teaching, self-study, interactive discussions, case studies and workshops. We conclude each course with an examination approximately four weeks after the end of each course.

Our courses have been developed as a collaboration between a team of internationally renowned regulatory affairs experts from the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, the Danish Medicines Agency and researchers from the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. Through their representation in the Steering Committee and as frequent course leaders and lecturers in the individual modules, all these experts are involved in the continuous development of our programme.
