Study options

Choose the study method that works best for you.

CIMA’s flexible structure and on-demand exams put you in the driving seat - giving you complete control over how, when and where you study - so the way you study will hold the key to your exam success.

Studying with a tuition provider 

You can attend a course with one of the many global tuition providers that teach CIMA. This is a good option if you like to study with others and appreciate having a tutor on hand for any questions. Lessons will be planned to cover the full course and offer revision prior to sitting your exam.

It’s easy to find a top-quality, accredited tuition provider near you that meets global standards using the CIMA Global Learning database.

Online and distance learning with CIMAstudy.com

Start anytime. Study anytime. Sit anytime.

If you want to choose when and where you study, but would also benefit from some tutor support, then distance learning may be the right choice for you.

CIMAstudy.com is the only online learning resource reviewed and approved by the CIMA, delivered in partnership with Kaplan.

It’s ideal if you live in an area where there is little or no tuition provision, or just if you prefer to self-study at your own pace.

Study with official CIMA study texts and materials

Looking for a cost-effective method to study the CIMA qualification? Study with the only CIMA faculty reviewed and endorsed Study Texts, Exam Practice Kits and Revision Cards – your only costs will be the texts or materials and exam fee.

Remember - home study requires high levels of discipline and self-motivation so we recommend blending this approach with online learning or tuition where you can.
