The Institute continues to expand its range of learning partnerships both in the UK and internationally. We offer a bespoke academic partnership agreement based on your needs and the relationship that you would like to have with us.

Being an CGIUKI Accredited Partner enables students on your courses to start their professional journey while they are studying with you. They can access our governance, risk and compliance resources and connect with our global membership of 30,000 governance professionals, to develop the networks they need for the future.

Our partnerships with universities follow a format referred to as a ‘validated postgraduate programme’, in which the partner University develops and maintains its own Masters programme.

This postgraduate programme is mapped against the CGIUKI’s Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme, and upon graduation, students are awarded Chartered Graduate status (GradCG) by the Institute, in addition to their Masters qualification.

Student membership for your postgraduate students includes:

  • Access to CGI’s resources
  • Access to CGI’s global community and branch network
  • Monthly student newsletters
  • Can enter Tom Morrison Essay Prize award (link)
  • Invitations to local and national events, webinars, conferences and networking events
  • Designatory letters of GradCG upon successful completion of your course
