2018 Update

There are some important changes coming to our Islamic Finance qualifications coming in mid-July 2018. You can read about these below.

From mid-July we will be implementing improvements to our Islamic Finance qualifications. 

As part of these improvements we will be migrating all study materials to a new e-learning platform, enabling you to access all Islamic Finance learning material online and on demand. Due to this change we will no longer be issuing a text book upon registration and the e-learning will be your only source of learning.

Assessments will now be open-book and taken through the new e-learning platform, meaning that you will be examined on how you interpret the information and how you use it in practice.

Upon successful completion of your qualification you will receive an e-certificate and a new digital badge award that you can use in your email signature, digital CVs and social media sites.

As examinations are being moved to the new e-learning platform, you will no longer need to sit exams at a Pearson Vue test centre. The last date you will be able to take an exam at a Pearson Vue test centre is 24th July 2018.
