    Gateway Route


The Certificate in Business Accounting is our entry level accounting qualification for students with little or no accounting background. It is a recognised qualification in its own right which is valued by employers.

Our Professional Qualification is regarded highly by employers around the world for its relevance to business.

CIMA also offers a qualification in Islamic finance.

Certificate in Business Accounting

You can study and register for the five certificate exams at your own pace. On average, students take one year to complete this level.

Professional Qualification

On average, students complete the 12 professional qualification exams in four years. Most students attempt two or three exams at each sitting but they can be completed in three sittings.

The Practical Experience Requirements are an essential part of the CIMA qualification. They complement the exams and measure whether students have gained enough experience of applying management accounting skills and techniques and are competent to become a CIMA member.

You will need a minimum of three years’ relevant practical experience, some or all of which may have been gained before registering as a CIMA student.

CIMA students pay a one-time registration fee, an annual subscription fee, and a fee for each exam or exemption. Check our fees list for full information.

New students do not have to pay their first years subscription.

Interim Naira based fee structure

In light of the recent Central Bank of Nigeria directive on foreign exchange control, CIMA Nigeria has put in place a temporary Naira-based fee structure to help you make your registration, exam and annual subscription fee payments. 

Please clearly state your CIMA contact ID on the payment reference/teller and send your proof of payment/scanned teller to  We will only be accepting electronic transfers and not cash payments.

In these unusual but temporary circumstances there may be a delay in the payment reflecting on your account. We will however be working tirelessly to ensure that all our members and students continue to receive and enjoy their benefits during this period.
