In 2015 the CISI reviewed how it worked with universities towards the development of future practitioners in our sector.
Professional feedback confirmed that exam passes (both academic and professional), rather than exemptions alone, make graduates more employable.
Under the CISI’s new employability strategy of introducing professional exams alongside academic study, a final deadline for all Centre of Excellence exemption applications was given as 1st December 2016.
This deadline was communicated clearly to all participating universities as well as being detailed on the CISI website.
In line with this we are no longer able to consider CISI Centre of Excellence exemption applications.
You are still able to apply for a general exemption through the CISI Exemption team. Contact the team via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that only finance related MSc or MA degrees with a strong investment related element are considered for exemption purposes.
