Following a recent review of our classroom course schedule, we’ve taken the decision to move all classroom courses scheduled to begin in January 2022 to a virtual classroom delivery. Our course dates remain unchanged, and affected students and employers have been contacted.

Our exam schedule will continue to be delivered in our Manchester centre as planned. For the latest information on sitting exams, please see our exam booking page. Our team continue to be available to answer your queries during the hours shown via our usual channels.

We’ll review our position on classroom course delivery following the next government review of guidance on 26 January 2022.

“Enjoyed the focus on the exam rather than the content – it’s the exam I need to pass! The tutor was very engaging and made it a pleasure to attend. The number of mocks and feedback is invaluable.”


“I enjoy FI Manchester’s small classes. I feel it is easier to ask questions and I have more confidence when answering questions as I am not one who finds it too easy speaking up even if I know the answer. FI Manchester has helped me study and feel prepared for the upcoming exam. I look forward to being back in the classroom as I find it easier to learn.”

Helen – ACCA AAA

“I really like the accessibility of the tutors for feedback and general help. Their knowledge and assistance is excellent. Also good class sizes”

First Intuition Manchester is good at providing further help when taught and revision classes have finished.
