The CISI and Universities

We accredit a range of leading universities to offer access of an appropriate CISI qualification to students on selected finance based degree programmes. Students can achieve an industry recognised professional qualification alongside their degree, helping distinguish them in the competitive graduate market.

  • Improve your employment prospects
  • Enable you to demonstrate your finance expertise
  • Allow you to become professionally qualified in a shorter period of time

Centres of Excellence

We also recognise the synergy between some university offerings and the CISI’s higher level postgraduate qualifications. A select group of universities have been identified as Centres of Excellence for their Postgraduate programmes. Students’ studying elected Masters programmes up to and including 2015/16 at these centres will receive full exemption against the prestigious CISI Diploma or Specialised Diplomas, providing an accelerated route to full CISI membership. The CISI Diploma will no longer be available after December 2016 and in co-ordination with exemption applications will only be accepted until 31 December 2016.
