“I started my CIMA Journey in January 2022 and I needed a learning provider that would help me prepare for the Certificate in Business Accounting exams. I was lucky enough to have found Astranti.
Using the well constructed courses, learning materials and study planner, I was able to study effectively and pass the BA1 exam. I look forward to using Astranti to complete the rest of my exams.”

How our free courses compare

When the 2017 CIMA certificate syllabus was introduced we decided to do something drastic! 

Instead of updating the original certificate materials that we had and then charging the same prices as we always have done, we thought we’d do things a little differently.

We decided to step away from the norm and instead offer all of our new CIMA certificate materials and courses to students absolutely free of charge. Why? Well we hope that you will like the materials so much, that you will then choose to stick with us throughout the remainder of your CIMA exams.

Why not check out the table below to see how our courses compare to one of the popular tuition providers?

What our students say

Please see our testimonials page for our latest student reviews. Here are a couple of examples:

“I started my CIMA journey with Astranti using the tuition videos, revision notes, practice questions, mock exams and other materials including the casestudy analysis pack, I have been able to complete 9 OT exams and 3 Casestudies in 8 months! I cannot recommend the materials enough. The on demand setup allows each student to work at their own pace and also has a structure for those looking to complete this in that way. Thank you Astranti!!”

“Truly Excellent. I passed all 16 CIMA examinations first time – with the excellent material from Astranti helping me prepare for those examinations.
Many thanks for the support – the material (videos and printed material – including mock exams etc) was invaluable.”
