Personalised progression through the CIMA qualification.

We have created structured study schedules with more flexibility that allow you to progress through the levels in the most appropriate way for you. From an accelerated 6 month route to 12 months per level – there is a breadth of options available.

You can mix and match between the different modes of study e.g. E pillar via Online Classroom, F & P pillar via Online Classroom Live and study for your Integrated Case Study via In Centre Classroom. You can even study multiple papers at once as all our schedules complement each other, no matter which study mode you choose.

6 month accelerated

If you want to complete a whole level in 6 months this route is the most appropriate for you.

  • All OTs would be studied at the same time
  • CIMA qualified in 1 1/2 years

9 month

You would have a break of approx. 6-8 weeks between sitting your Case Study exam and the next level’s Operational Test programme starting.

  • All programmes would be studied one-at-a-time
  • CIMA qualified in under 2 1/2 years
  • You can progress faster by mixing and matching study modes

  • Time period over which OTs are studied could be extended (and break reduced)
