Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme

The Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme covers seven subjects at two levels. Students without a background in law, finance or governance start with the Foundation Programme at Level 4 (first year undergraduate level) to learn the key concepts that underpin the rest of the Qualifying Programme.

Students with a law, finance or governance background may be able to start at Part One at Level 6 (final year undergraduate level). Part One builds your technical knowledge of governance, law, finance and compliance.

Exams take place in June and November.* If we do not have an exam centre in your country of residence, we can help you to make arrangements.
