Your Entry Point
Because CIMA is not merely a financial qualification, our students come from a wide range of backgrounds. Of our existing students, only half have a business or financial qualification; the rest come from a variety of social sciences, language, science or engineering courses. Graduates of business or accountancy disciplines may be awarded exemptions from complete stages and/or exam papers.
Details of exemptions may be viewed on our website at www.cimaglobal.com/exemptions
Becoming qualified is a straightforward and highly flexible process. The study options include taught lectures (part-time, evening or weekend), online tuition through www.cimastudy.com and distance-learning. Please contact the Dublin office for a list of tuition providers countrywide.
