No matter what your educational background, CIMA flexible entry policy enables anyone with a real desire to succeed in business to realize their potential.
The syllabus is progressive and your skills will develop as you advance. The later stages are similar in content to undergraduate and postgraduate studies and you will need to have reached a good standard in Mathematics and English language before commencing your studies.
Relevant higher educational awards, such as degrees and professional qualifications in accounting or business subjects could enable you to enter at an advanced stage.
You may not need to sit for all CIMA exams if you have a relevant academic qualification. In such cases you may be awarded exemptions from selected CIMA papers.
In order to apply for exemptions you will need to send us a certified copy of your award certificate and a copy of the transcript (details of the subjects you studied) along with your completed registration form and relevant fees. To be certified the copy of your certificate and transcript must be signed by a responsible person as a true copy of the original. We suggest asking your manager or a lecturer to sign the copy. All certified certificates and transcripts must be in English.
