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
