Syllabus transition online courses

What you need to bridge the gap between the 2015 syllabus and the new 2019 syllabus. 

Transitional courses

CIMA will begin Objective Test examinations under the 2019 Professional Qualification on 4 November 2019 and we want to make sure that you have the knowledge needed to pass your exams, without having to buy a whole new course.

We have identified the subjects which have the most significant changes and created a great selection of online courses to help you transition smoothly between the 2015 and the 2019 syllabus.*

These courses will cover the missing information from the 2015 syllabus to get you up to speed with the 2019 syllabus.

We have transition courses for:

  • E1: Managing Finance in a Digital World (formerly Organisational Management)
  • E2: Managing Performance (formerly Project and Relationship Management)
  • E3: Strategic Management
  • P3: Risk Management
  • F3: Financial strategy

Existing CIMAStudy students don’t need to buy the transitional course as content will automatically added to Moodle in November.

*Please note, these are not full courses and should only be used by students who have begun their studies under the 2015 Syllabus but will be sitting an exam under the 2019 Syllabus.

CIMAstudy 2015 Syllabus Courses - for students who still have valid access in Nov 2019

If you are enrolled on a 2015 syllabus CIMAstudy.com or CIMAstudy.com Prime course, and still have access left on your course after 1st November, you will get the new 2019 syllabus materials added to your course to help you pass your exams under the new syllabus.

These will be added to CIMAstudy by the 3rd November, clearly labelled as being 2019 syllabus materials. It will also include Transition Advice to show you which topics are new, which have moved to other subjects, and which have been removed.

We will then remove the 2015 syllabus material in early December once we are sure that anyone who is planning to sit their exam under the 2015 syllabus has sat their exam, leaving you with just the 2019 syllabus material.

If you need more information, please visit our Help and Support page to contact us.

*E1 has the most number of changes, so you may still want to buy the new 2019 course before sitting any exams to give you the best chance of success.
