The CIMA programme at DMU is designed to keep your weekdays free for work and your weekends for play!
Each course (non-Certificate) will be run over an 11 week sequence of 4 hour evening sessions (other than E1 & E2 which are 10 sessions each). These 11 sessions will be composed of 7 sessions of tuition (equivalent to 4 full days of tuition), 3 sessions of revision (equivalent to 1½ full days of revision) and 1 session of question practise/Mocks (equivalent to a ½ day of question practise).
The tuition sessions will be evenly allocated to the learning objectives based on the official CIMA syllabus structure weightings. The materials being used will be the officially recognised CIMA study materials. There will only be one course per evening so no clashes.
On top of this, 2 further revision and question practise sessions (the 12th and 13th) will run in February/August for CIMA papers (if required) following the exam sitting for those who failed, to aid them pass the resit exams in March/September so as to continue their progression.
These resit sessions are free of charge if an 80% attendance level has been maintained and the resit exam has been booked.
There are five levels in CIMA’s syllabus. Exemptions are available at the discretion
of CIMA. Leicester Business School expects to offer classes according to the following course:
