Course Detail

PD147 - Copyright Training

This course will introduce you to the legal definitions of copyright, what it covers and how it is applied. It will also cover licences and exceptions allowed under the law.

The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in copyright but may be particularly relevant to those in administrative and teaching roles.

The course will include presentations and opportunities to participate in activities such as a “game of cards” and a “judge & jury” session to enhance your understanding of the topic.

Copyright compliance is a legal requirement but one that is too often overlooked; this course will ensure you have the basic skills to follow best practice in your work role.

PhD students please note that this course is intended for members of staff working at the university and does not accrue points towards your PhD’s professional development scheme. It is therefore not generally recommended for PhD Students.

If there is a particular reason that you want to attend the session, e.g. if you are also employed as a member of college staff whilst studying and require the session to support you in your work, please email to explain to us your reason for needing to attend. If not, we shall cancel your booking.


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • identify the areas covered by copyright legislation
  • identify whether materials comply with the legislation
  • know how licences and legal exceptions operate
  • follow appropriate legal and institutional procedures relating to copyright
  • apply their knowledge to their own context
