Join the Class of '22

A unique opportunity to kick start your CIMA studies

Introducing a free and highly interactive 12-week programme of learning support for any student at the Operational, Management or Strategic levels. It’s ideal for anyone studying, or planning to study for, Objective Test exams between September and November 2022. 

What’s in it for me?

Join an award-winning programme and, in return for your commitment, you will receive a timetable of support as outlined below. If followed, it will improve your chances of success in your chosen exam/s.

The programme contains more than 60 hours of support material, including: 

  • Study calendar ― A step-by-step weekly guide with downloadable learning resources to maximise your chances of exam success.
  • Recorded webcasts and articles, focussing on study techniques, time management and exam skills.
  • Recordings of tricky topic tutorials presented by our CIMA tuition provider experts.
  • A dedicated Facebook group providing an opportunity to network with your peers and interact with CIMA staff.
  • An exclusive free exam resit offer (subject to meeting T’s and C’s).
  • Certificate of completion ― Class of ’22.

What we need from you:

Motivate yourself by booking your exam early in the support programme. Commit yourself to sticking to that exam date and plan backwards from it. Follow the study support programme and guidance in our weekly emails either in full, or by selecting relevant resources as and when you need them. Note that the more you participate in the programme, the greater your chances of exam success.

How does the programme work?

This programme is designed to complement tuition, self-study or revision. It does not replace study of the technical knowledge (syllabus content) needed to pass CIMA exams. It does include support material that will allow you to take ownership of your learning and exam preparation. With advice on time planning, and insight from the CIMA markers, examiners and exam top performers, it will also ensure you’re aware of all the exam requirements.

Is this the programme for you?

This free-of-charge programme is for you if you:

  • Need step-by-step guidance and additional learning support.
  • Want to get back on track with your studies and know where to start.
  • Have challenges around procrastination and time management.
