CISI Education University Partnership
University of Derby Online Learning is the first online University degree programme in the UK to be partnered with the Chartered Institution for Securities and Investment (CISI), the largest and most widely respected professional body for the securities and investment profession in the UK, with a growing number of global financial centres. Our Management Accounting BSc (Hons) Top-Up degree course has been closely mapped against the CISI’s Introduction to Investment foundation qualification, helping you to prepare you for its exam, which can be taken at the University of Derby campus or at one of the CISI’s global test centres.
Furthermore, students wishing to pursue the Introduction to Investment qualification will benefit from a 50% saving on the exam fee and the work book. A one-off registration fee will be payable to become a CISI Student Member, giving you access to a number of membership benefits designed to support your studies and broaden your career development. We are offering a limited number of scholarships to cover the cost of the CISI Registration Fee, exam fee and workbook – a select few will be chosen upon enrolment.
The Introduction to Investment qualification is the first step on the CISI qualification pathway, and is also recognised by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It will be of special interest to you if you are interested in a career in wealth management, operational investments, financial planning, compliance and risk, and stock broking. Upon completion of this foundation qualification, there is then an option to join the CISI as an Affiliate member (subject to annual membership fee).
