Our goal is to make the Astranti Premium Course the most comprehensive on the market.

Over more than 15 years of teaching CIMA case study we’ve considered exactly what students need to support you in order to give you everything you need to pass.

So what exactly do you get?

“Brilliant study material. I used Astranti throughout, sucked in by their free products at certificate level and I’m glad I was! The material provided is brilliant and the course tutors know exactly what it takes to get the pass at the case studies, if you use them and put the hours in you will pass! Couldn’t recommend enough, and achieved first time passes in all professional exams.”

Exclusive to the course

Tutor & Mentor support

There are so many benefits to studying online, like flexibility, cost savings and the ability to study at your own pace.

However, there are often some challenges too, such as a lack of study structure, lots of distractions, limited accountability and a general feeling of isolation, which can all lead to reduced motivation and momentum!

For this reason, our premium courses give you exclusive access to our tutors and course mentors.

Use our course discussion hubs to contact our expert CIMA tutors whenever you need help with a tricky piece of theory.

And, have regular check-ins with your own personal course mentor via email, video call or a combination of the two, to get help staying focused, hitting your deadlines and ensuring you have everything you need to pass your exam.

“The study materials, the online masterclasses, the analysis of the case study, industry analysis, and ethics analysis were vital to my passing. But the marked mocks with feedback prepared me mostly, found some of them harder than the exam, which prepared me brilliantly, helped to reduce nerves and gave me confidence for exam day.”

“I have used Astranti for OCS pre-seen (their notes are a great guide and the analysis helps you familiarize with pre-seen in depth) and then went on to buy full package for both MCS and SCS and managed to get first time passes on both exams. Their material is great and the marked Mocks especially help you get ready for exam writing (for which theory knowledge is not enough). Would highly recommend it to everyone!”

What our students say

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

“I started with the operational level while pregnant with my son and a 2-year-old daughter and a full-time job.
With the help of Astranti’s great material, I managed to pass the OT exams as well as OCS first time. That gave me some confidence to attempt MCS with a baby, toddler and full-time job. Again with the easy-to-understand and to-the-point materials, I managed to pass all my OT and MCS exams first time. I would definitely not have been able to do this without Astranti.
Their materials are at a higher standard than the actual exams (in my opinion) so if you pass their mocks and exam practice kits, you should be fine for the exams. The study material is to the point and easy to understand with great interesting real-life examples helping people with busy lives to get a grip on the content in good time.
When I started, I realized most people that do this have a whole family and work life apart from their studies and having a tuition provider like Astranti really lightens the load.
