                                                              Our Study Recommendation


                                                              We have designed the TEPP Gateway Package (TEPP Combo 4) for you to pass your exam 1st time! Our Recommendation is that even  though you qualify for the Gateway Exam route (i.e. direct entry through the CIMA Management Case Study (MCS) exams), going directly to attend our Gateway Exam course will require that your knowledge of E2, P2 & F2 under the CIMA 2019 syllabus is up to date as the course mainly seeks to apply that knowledge to the case study. Please ensure you review the  CIMA 2019 Syllabus for E2, P2 & F2   to confirm that your Master's Degree or Professional Qualification was not only recently obtained but rigorously covered this syllabus. If not, we strongly  recommend that you enrol for/take our Tuition & Exam Preparation Package (TEPP -Evenings or Weekends) to help deepen your mastery of E2, P2 & F2 and secure the vital tools you will need on the Gateway course instead of going direct. Experience teaches us that 90% of those who follow our advice pass 1st Time whereas 95% of those who do not often regret it!

                                                              Should you follow this advice, note that you will not be required to write the official E2, P2 & F2 CIMA OT Exams as you have been exempted but you can take our internal tests to prepare you ahead of the Gateway course which normally starts 3-4 weeks after. You can take the Combo 4 TEPP Package.

                                                              During COVID-19 TEPP Package Classes are offered through online platforms.

                                                              Step 1: Pre-Enrolment Guide

                                                              Are you contemplating coming to study accounting and finance in South Africa? Please read the step-by-step guide on your left, which will give you information on what you need to know and do, in order to come and study in South Africa with CharterQuest.

                                                              South Africa, in recent years, has experienced a growing number of students coming each year to study finance and accounting courses. This step-by-step international students' guide, equips you with the necessary information on the process of becoming an international student with CharterQuest from the enrolment phase through to procuring your study permit and beginning classes.

                                                              Step 2 - Enrol with CharterQuest

                                                              To enrol as an inter­na­tional stu­dent down­load our Inter­na­tional Stu­dent Pol­icy (get pol­icy here); read it care­fully as it details all the require­ments, then email a signed copy as well as indi­ca­tion of which course and sub­jects you would like to enrol in. If not done so already, you may also reg­is­ter with your respec­tive pro­fes­sional body and apply for exemp­tions, if need be, as this allows you to know the appro­pri­ate level to begin your course.

                                                              Once we receive your signed inter­na­tional stu­dents pol­icy this will enable us to reg­is­ter you as an inter­na­tional stu­dent with Char­terQuest and allow us to avail your pro- forma invoice stat­ing your tuition fee for up to 6 sub­jects per year and for which you can make pay­ment using the bank­ing details provided.

                                                              Step 3 - Documentation & Accommodation

                                                              Once enrolled/ registered as an inter­na­tional stu­dent you then need to pro­cure your study per­mit. You will receive a let­ter of admis­sion and other doc­u­men­ta­tion (see inter­na­tional stu­dent pol­icy) from us which you can use to lodge your study per­mit appli­ca­tion. You need to prop­erly research the require­ments needed to obtain a study permit/ visa to come study in South Africa, this visa checklist (See VISA Check­list) pro­vides a sum­mary of these require­ments so that you can have an idea of the cri­te­ria and nec­es­sary documentation.

                                                              We under­stand how hard it is to relo­cate so we have pro­vided accom­mo­da­tion ser­vices exclu­sively for our inter­na­tional stu­dents to ease this tran­si­tion. Your accom­mo­da­tion costs are built into your tuition fee and as such, Char­terQuest arranges suit­able accom­mo­da­tion for you with ease of access to your cam­pus of study. Once you have been fully enrolled you will need to sign a sep­a­rate accom­mo­da­tion agree­ment with Char­terQuest as details will be stated in this agree­ment. Please note you also have the option of procur­ing your own accom­mo­da­tion should you wish to do so and it is one the require­ments of your study permit/ visa appli­ca­tion to pro­vide proof of accom­mo­da­tion arrangement

                                                              Step 4 - Lodge Study Permit Application

                                                              South Africa’s stu­dent visa/ permit regime is far friend­lier than that of UK and most Main­land Euro­pean coun­tries, USA, Canada, Aus­tralia and New Zealand. You can lodge your study per­mit appli­ca­tion either at a South African Embassy in your home coun­try or from within South Africa at your near­est Depart­ment of Home Affairs. We rec­om­mend that you pro­cure your study per­mit before trav­el­ling to South Africa. There is a huge short­age of accoun­tants in South Africa and that is the rea­son immi­gra­tion rules allow you to work for­merly for up to 20 hours whilst study­ing and enlists account­ing as pri­or­ity skills area for pro­vi­sion of quota work per­mits upon com­plet­ing your studies.

                                                              Step 5 - Begin Course with CharterQuest

                                                              Once you have obtained your per­mit you can begin your course as an Inter­na­tional Stu­dent with Char­terQuest. Stu­dents, dur­ing and upon com­ple­tion of their pro­fes­sional des­ig­na­tion can also search for account­ing and finance jobs and con­nect with South African & global recruiters/ employers through    Char­ter­Con­nect  , our careers ser­vices portal.

                                                              Given the integrated nature of the Strategic Case Study Exams, you need a team of expert tutors who are not only CA(SA), CIMA and/or MBA-qualified, but with years of actual CIMA teaching experience around the above 4 individual modules, plus Strategic Case Study Exams, to hold your hands. This is precisely how our course is structured: around your life-style and learning style, and sensitive to your mid-to-advanced career pressures. 

                                                              We combine the practical application of knowledge and the integration of what you already know, with the new CIMA material; departing from textbook-style learning, flexibly blending face-to-face (classroom-style) teaching with our technology enabled e-learning platforms, to grant access to video-recorded sessions and materials, whilst exploiting a network and collaborative approach through whatsapp and linked-in groups.
